The Comic Opera for Children

OCC draws its uniqueness from the fact that all of its shows are exclusively for children from the age of 3 upwards. OCC houses three auditoriums - Great Hall, with a capacity of 424 seats, Mozart Salon, with 130 seats, and UnderGrant Hall, with 120 seats - where not only famous soloists and dancers but also very young talents perform. Nowadays, there are more than 500 events scheduled each season with the main goal of reaching as many children in Bucharest as possible. We believe that it is never too early to expose a child to the great musical works of art and we strive to make it as fun as possible for everyone involved in this process. Every month over 10,000 children see our shows and even more visit us virtually.

Main goals and missions of the organisation

OCC produces and promotes musical culture and performing arts shows for children in-house and abroad, aimed at their education and emotional development starting from a very early age. It initiates and supports educational, cultural and social-formative projects addressed to the target audience and strives to collaborate with educational institutions by providing qualified support to schools to carry out valuable projects. OCC organizes and conducts educational programmes and creative research activities for the continuous improvement of specialised personnel in the artistic, musical, theatre, opera, ballet and technical field. 

Main activities of the organisation

Our main activity consists of daily shows hosted in our three halls, but children are also welcome to enrol in our extracurricular workshops or to take part in fun activities (outdoor cinema during summer, outdoor skating rink during winter, interactive lessons, workshops, festivals, backstage tours), all meant to reach children's souls and capture their smiles. With over 70 titles of opera, operetta, musical and ballet in its repertoire, OCC has over 500 performances annually, both in-house and on tour.

How will the project contribute to and enrich activities of your organisation?

Based on our mission, the project contributes to the development of the young public through improvisation theatre - a new type of performance in OCC's repertoire. Also, it represents a great opportunity to get even closer to our partners and schools, for whom we can provide a cultural communication tool for the younger generation. Through Young Theatre, we expand our work space into school units, we engage more deeply with our audience, and we develop a cultural-educational tool among the young public that encourages creativity and innovation of expression.
