Der betörende Gesang des Zaubervogels
A musical theatre production based on a Tanzanian folktale
Thirty children aged 10-11 years have been rehearsing intensively since the summer break with the long-established team of musical theatre educators Katharina Tarján (scene development), Jonas Hagen Olejniczak (chorus master) and Jonas Flemmerer (instrument coach). Using the folktale as their starting point, the children worked on and shaped their roles to a large extent themselves and developed musical/rhythmic material through improvisation. The piece also features folk songs and well-known opera tunes.
