Securing the continuity of performances during the Corona pandemic

Frankfurt am Main, Germany

The Corona pandemic is currently a major global problem. Frightening news reaches us every day. In these difficult times, it is more important than ever to give children and families access to theatre and live music. Please help us!

About this project

The Papageno Musiktheater offers a varied evening programme – opera-plays, operettas, musicals, and concert evenings. Theatre director Hans-Dieter Maienschein has developed the form of performance of opera-plays and has tailored it to the theatre in recent years. Here the plot of the opera is transformed into a play with music. At the same time, young, talented opera singers are introduced who integrate themselves into the acting ensemble. In this way, opera lovers can enjoy the musical highlights and "not-yet-opera-goers" get to know composers and music. The Papageno Musiktheater is also a popular attraction for families and school classes because of its children's programme with its lovingly staged musical adventures, fairy tales, and musical comedies: By combining classical music with spoken theatre, children are easily introduced to drama and opera. 
Due to the current distance and hygiene regulations in connection with the Corona pandemic, it is not possible for our theatre to work economically. However, in order to guarantee children and families access to our cultural programme, which is more important than ever in these difficult times, we urgently need financial support. Each performance is associated with a financial loss for the theatre of several hundred euros. In order to ensure the continuation of the theatre, which resumed its operations in September 2020, continued support for the non-profit theatre is of the utmost importance.
