Die Schneekönigin

In the organizer's words:
Kay is gone. From one moment to the next he has changed, is mean and hurtful - his best friend Gerda sets out and is ultimately able to free him from the Snow Queen's ice palace. Andersen's well-known fairy tale is transformed into a road movie with lots of wit and pace for everyone aged 8 and up ... Directed by Brigitte Dethier; With Sophia Körber, Alexandra Ionis, Martin Gerke, Hanna Binder, Jone Bolibar Núñez, Louise Leverd, Jack Adler-McKean, Henriette Zahn, Daniel Eichholz
Gerda and Kay are best friends. But when Kay gets a splinter in her eye, suddenly everything is different. Childish, well-behaved and stupid, he finds Gerda and his other friends and follows the enticing voice of the ice-beautiful Snow Queen. Now Gerda sets off - and while she searches for her Kay, she finds herself: In the eerily beautiful realm of the Flower Queen, in the boring-golden court of the Princess, in the dangerously dark cave of the Robber Queen, she learns to stand up for herself and her friends. In the end, with the help of crow and reindeer, she finds her way to the cold north of Lapland and with the true power of friendship - laughter - she is able to free her Kay from the clutches of the Snow Queen.

For generations, it has been impossible to imagine children's rooms without Hans Christian Andersen's art fairy tale - and it has inspired authors and composers. Now, in December and January, the Tischlerei of the Deutsche Oper Berlin will be transformed into the icy-cold world of the Snow Queen. Composer Samuel Penderbayne, librettist Christian Schönfelder and director Brigitte Dethier go on Gerda's journey with an actress, three singers and five musicians. Together they tell a road movie with wit and chills: music-making flowers, a croaking clarinet, a tuba reindeer and the eerily beautiful synthesizer world of the Snow Queen are just some of the ingredients for this musical theater in which the children are right up close to the action.
