About the Event
The composer Mozartini urgently needs the children's help so that Tamino and Papageno can free the princess Pamina. But catching birds and taming wild animals is not easy either! Will the magic instruments, a flute and a glockenspiel, help?
If you want to get a taste of the stage, you've come to the right place. Mozartini needs lots of children to help Tamino and Papageno with the important tasks. But those who just want to watch will have just as much fun.
With the largest selection of children's classics, KinderOPER in the KRYPTA presents varied works for young and old. Due to the proximity to the singers, there is a special exchange of energy that grips even the youngest. Authentic, genuine opera theater is presented, which is primarily tailored to the needs of young audiences, but also captivates the young at heart.
Seats are assigned on the spot. Every young guest is guaranteed a free view. An entertaining children's work introduction takes place before the performance begins.
The bright and friendly KRYPTA is pleasantly tempered at any time of the year.
Prince Tamino gets lost in the forest and is saved by the children from a poisonous snake. He falls madly in love with the image of Princess Pamina. Her mother, the Queen of the Night, asks him to free her daughter from the captivity of the sorcerer Sarastro. The jolly bird catcher Papageno is to accompany him. To help Tamino, she gives him a magic flute and Papageno a silver glockenspiel. But both get lost in the forest.
Papageno meets Monostatos, Pamina's guard. The latter is appeased by Papageno's chimes.
At the same time, Tamino tries out the flute. Calmed by the music, the animals of the forest show him the way to Sarastro's castle.
There, everyone learns why Sarastro had Pamina kidnapped. She is to become Tamino's wife and his successor as soon as he has passed the difficult tests. Tamino skilfully overcomes the great dangers and walks through fire and water.
Glad not to have to endure even such trials, Papageno, however, has a great wish: a female, one like him, a Papagena! Then he plays his glockenspiel and an ugly old woman appears. She threatens Papageno with imprisonment if he does not marry her. Thereupon he vows eternal fidelity, because he has nothing to lose. Then the old woman turns into a beautiful young woman in whom Papageno recognizes his long desired Papagena.
