The goose girl

for children 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.

Das verzauberte Schwein

for children from the age of six

Princesses Mab, Dot and Flora are to be married. But things could not be worse for the youngest of the three sisters: a pig, of all things, appears at the palace to claim her as his bride. Although it soon transpires that the pig is an enchanted prince, this is just the beginning of Flora’s problems… She courageously takes her fate into her own hands and embarks on a long journey to the end of the world and beyond in order to save her prince.

With this musical fairy tale of 2006, the British composer Jonathan Dove created a fast-paced, witty and yet profound piece that has already thrilled children and adults alike in Britain and the United States. A German version of The Enchanted Pig, wittily translated by Peter Lund, can now be seen for the first time.

The Wisard of Oz 16/17

for children from the age of six

A tornado carries the farm girl Dorothy with her dog Toto off to the distant land of the Munchkins. Dorothy has to pass some difficult trials. Fortunately, she is not alone: on her journey she encounters a scarecrow, a tin man and a lion. Together, they set off to find the mysterious Wizard of Oz in the Emerald City, who is supposed to help Dorothy find her way home. The travelling companions prove that they have kind hearts, intelligence and courage, and ultimately survive all their adventures with bravura. The Opera House commissioned the Italian composer Pierangelo Valtinoni to write a children’s opera based on Lyman Frank Baum’s story, which also came to fame through the Hollywood film starring Judy Garland.

Gold 16/17

for children from the age of 6

Jacob and his parents are poor – so poor that they cannot even afford to pay for an apartment and are forced to dwell in a hole under a tree. Jacob goes fishing with his father at sea. Today, Jacob catches a special fish. “Please, throw me back into the sea,” says the fish, “throw me back in and let me live – whatever you want, I shall give you!” Jacob is so bewildered that he drops the fish back into the sea. He later realises that he should have wished for a pair  of shoes. The next day he goes back to the sea and calls the fish. Immediately, a brand-new pair of shoes shines on his feet. Jacob’s parents are angry. Why didn’t he wish for a house? The next day, Jacob goes to the sea again, and the fish once again fulfils his wish, as he does all the other, increasingly excessive wishes with which Jacob’s parents charge him. The fish becomes thinner and thinner, and the sea ever wilder… The young Dutch composer Leonard Evers has created an enchanting children’s opera for a mezzo-soprano and percussionist from the well-known fairy tale about the fisherman and his wife.
