... Such is the advice of the Flower Queen to Gerda as she sets off in search of her friend, Kai. The Snow Queen has abducted Kai after an icy shard of glass embedded itself in his heart, warping his personality. He has become mean and callous and has gone away – yet Gerda is not about to give up on him.
THE SNOW QUEEN is our new opera for children aged 8 and over. Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, the opera is complex and presents a heroine whose loyalty, faith in her friend and confidence in herself are all being tested to the limit, along with her ability to learn, to scrutinise things carefully and to listen attentively. THE SNOW QUEEN is an amalgam of fairy tale, adventure story, road trip and depiction of character development.
Bring your 3rd – 6th year pupils to see THE SNOW QUEEN in the Tischlerei. The music is by Samuel Penderbayne and the work is staged by Brigitte Dethier, one of the most experienced directors of children’s theatre in Germany.
