Berlin: New children’s opera by Attila Kadri Şendil
September 24, 2017
A donkey, a dog, a cat, and a rooster. What do they have in common? In Attila Kadri Şendil’s world premiere work at the Komische Oper, Bremen Mızıkacıları (The Town Musicians of Bremen), based on the beloved German folk tale, they are all misfits who band together and find strength, friendship, and purpose. The two-act children’s opera has a libretto combining German and Turkish, and a wide-ranging musical style that includes the use of traditional Turkish instruments in the orchestra. Ivo Hentschel conducts performances Sept. 24-Dec. 26. — Anne E. Johnson
