Puss in boots (6 – 9 y)

2016 & 2017

Adaptation of the opera of Cesar Antonowitsch Cui.

Language: songs in German, narratation in Dutch

The Russian composer Cui wrote this fairytale opera in 1913 and transplanted Perrault’s well-known tale in a whimsical musical world in which nature, humans and courtly life are given their own individual sounds.
The story of Puss in Boots is all about the treasure that can be hidden in insignificant little things. If you pay close attention, you can awaken a little voice inside yourself that will encourage you to discover your talents, overcome barriers and realise your dreams. A little performance about a big hero.

Coproduction with Zomeropera Alden Biesen
