This season's Youth Club projects at the Vienna State Opera are based on the motto Utopera! The meaning of the title is decided by the ensemble itself, and some participants grouped up to create "OpernStoff", the Vienna State Opera's new podcast.

The special feature: Not only the title, but also the podcast concept and the technical realisation come from the young adults themselves.

In the individual episodes, the young podcasters discuss and debate with the staff and artists topics that seem important and exciting to them concerning Parsifal and Macbeth as well as the theatre business and creative work at the Vienna State Opera.

Each episode has a different focus, e.g. dramaturgy, music or technology. In the following episodes, the audience can expect interviews with the chief dramaturge Sergio Morabito, the solo répétiteur and assistant to the music director Jendrik Springer and Daniel Froschauer, principal violinist of the State Opera Orchestra, among others.

In addition to the Vienna State Opera's website, the episodes are also available on Spotify.
