SERIES "Chamber Concerts for Children"



Classical music and language in an extraordinary combination and highest quality – that is how Edition SEE-IGEL (www.see-igel.de) has been presenting stories and fairy-tales for children aged 6 and up for the past few years. The touching and funny texts are accompanied by and
combined with music in order to open up a new level of narration, creating a new and vivacious combination of music and language.

For the first time, productions by the Edition SEE-IGEL will be realized live at the Salzburg Festival by students at the Mozarteum University and the well-known and popular actress Sunnyi Melles, who will bring the texts and figures to life with her voice.

The program features two productions: Jorinde und Joringel, based on the Brothers Grimm – the beautiful fairy-tale is about the special power of love to conquer all evil powers; as well as Schmetterlingsküsschen [Butterfly Kisses], a story by Ute Kleeberg: sometimes friendship comes to us like a butterfly, delicately and cautiously – as in the case of Emilie, who cannot walk, and Emil, the best football player in his children’s group.

After the concert, the children will have the time and opportunity to ask questions and to talk to the performers.
