Tube-Opera «Pique Dame»
Film a music video
For 12- to 18-year-olds
Tchaikovsky’s opera thriller Pique Dame tells the story of the penniless outsider Hermann. He falls in love with Lisa, who is already engaged to be married. Hermann is a gambler, and hopes to attain wealth and status through luck at cards and thus win Lisa’s heart. However, his obsession with gambling destroys his love for Lisa, and Hermann ends up by shooting himself. Gripping characters and settings such as a gambling casino and a ballroom make the opera particularly suitable for interpretation on film. In this holiday workshop, young people make a music video about selected scenes from the opera under the guidance of video experts and drama teachers.
25 until 30 Apr 2016, 1O.OO until 17.OO

Zurich Opera House aims to kindle young people’s enthusiasm for opera and ballet. Our offers are directed at all age groups ranging from children of pre-school and primary school age to young adults, and make these art forms and selected works accessible, appropriately to these age groups. We take our guests on themed tours behind the scenes at the Opera House and provide insights into the way we work and our artistic processes. At thematically structured workshops with an immediate relevance to practical implementation, we intensify these impressions and make work at the theatre come alive. We intend to raise awareness of the quality of art and stimulate children and young people to discover their own creativity. We seek a dialogue with young audiences and give them the opportunity to engage with art in an active way.
