Who's young* here?

All those who has never seen an opera.
All those who likes to daydream and then go outside and try their luck.
All those who dares to speak even when outnumbered.
All those who is not embarrassed to stand in front of someone and sing.
All those who sometimes gives in to temptation.
All those who asks themselves: What the hell is wrong with my body?
All those who likes to be naughty from time to time.
All those who is sick of beauty standards.
All those.

And possibly you as well.
See you at JOiN!

Yours, Martin Mutschler and Keith Bernard Stonum
Directors JOiN – Junge Oper im Nord

What is opera* here?

Opera is at least two things - the wildest world-embracing art form and a very concrete place. Just as the JOiN is a theater in the industrial area of northern Stuttgart. And at the same time a chemical laboratory in which you can sing and spin, join in the excitement and help shape things. A small stage that dreams of being both: a temple of art and a community center, and a chameleon of many colors, especially on gray days.


Since its formation in 1997 by Klaus Zehelein, the Junge Oper Stuttgart has operated as an independent institution under the umbrella of the Staatsoper Stuttgart. Over the past years it has generated a pioneering repertory for young audiences. With the beginning of the 18-19 season and Viktor Schoner commencing as intendant, the Junge Oper Stuttgart has moved into a new building of their own: the Nord. The new venue enables the Junge Oper to intensify its strategy of learning concepts, to enlarge its repertory and to raise the number of performances as a reaction to the mostly young audiences.

With the change of venue, the Junge Oper also changed its name: JOiN (Junge Oper im Nord). With more than 18 world premieres, JOiN has established itself since its foundation also nationally as an institution for New Music and Contemporary Music Theatre for all age groups.

The closeness of the three rehearsal stages in the Nord also allows JOiN to offer a transparent opera workshop where interested visitors of all ages can experience the various stages of a new production’s highly complex rehearsal process.
