Das Gespenst von Canterville

for horror fans from the age of six

The Goose Girl is one of the most profound fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm: a king’s daughter loses three drops of blood and hence the protection of her mother. As a result, the sly chambermaid takes away her horse and prince, and the king’s daughter has to look after geese. Fearful of betrayal, the chambermaid has the horse, which can speak, killed. However, the king’s daughter follows his advice and entrusts her fate to an old oven… The composer Iris ter Schiphorst set this fascinating story to music. Her witty, jaunty music unleashed a storm of enthusiasm among the little listeners at the world première in Vienna in 2010. Lasting just over an hour, the piece is ideally suited to giving children their first taste of musical theatre.

Robin Hood

for children from the age of six

When his parents get on his nerves, Daniel most likes to switch on his “Robin Hood” computer game. This time, however, something goes wrong. Suddenly the door flies open, and the archer from the Middle Ages stands in the Holz family’s living room in Zurich. Daniel’s mother can scarcely believe her eyes and presses the computer keyboard in such panic that Robin Hood disappears again. But suddenly her son Daniel has also disappeared… He comes to his senses in Sherwood Forest, where things are not exactly peaceful: because King Richard the Lionheart has set off on a crusade, his evil brother, Prince John, has taken power and sent the Sheriff of Nottingham out to collect the taxes from the people. Fortunately, Robin Hood and his friends frequently rebel courageously against the Sheriff’s soldiers. At the moment, however, the situation is particularly tricky, as children from Switzerland, dressed in peculiar “designer jeans” keep turning up in Sherwood Forest. When Robin Hood and his merry men attempt to purloin the taxes horded by the Sheriff, his soldiers take the children captive. Daniel’s father has meanwhile discovered that the “Robin Hood” game that he developed is defective, and now also appears in the Middle Ages. Together, father and son devise a plan to free the children. Will peace return to Sherwood Forest, and will Robin Hood receive the kiss for the bravest archer from the beautiful Mary-Ann? We aren’t going to let on here. After Frank Schwemmer and Michael Frowin’s opera Treasure Island, which was premièred with great success at Zurich Opera House, this season we will be presenting their adventure opera, Robin Hood. An experience for the whole family!
