The ensemble "Oper@Tee" is a network of freelance singers (and other artists) who realize performances and projects in the field of classical music theatre and classical song. The genre emphasis is on:
With our projects we want to inspire the audience for the variety and genius of the often misunderstood and dismissed "light genre", which admittedly can only really come into its own if you try to convey it with a lot of skill and intelligence and which perhaps in its supposed innocence has more provocative potential and more "learning effect" than the so-called "serious genre".
In order to be able to inspire and excite children for music, theatre and music theatre, we conceive and write our children's operas - with weekly performances in the crypt of St. Peter's Church, Vienna - also in this comical folk theatre style, with the effect that the St. Peter's Children's Choir has seen an explosive increase in new members over the past year.
The ensemble name "Oper@Tee" was chosen in order to emphasize - besides the play on words with the generic term "operetta" - the chamber music framework of our performances, which are to be enjoyed comfortably on a Sunday afternoon next to a cup of tea. To give it a modern component, which we also want to include in our interpretations, the @-sign used in e-mails today was used in its original meaning as an abbreviation for the preposition "at".
