Die Reise des kleinen Prinzen (The Little Prince’s Travels)
Suitable for children and young people aged 6 and over
“We can only see properly with our hearts. Our eyes cannot see what is truly important.” Since 1943, when these timeless thoughts were first expressed by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in his tale “The Little Prince”, they have lost none of their force – quite the contrary! And this production has an equally current and contemporary impact. This is an opera for children, fashioned by Gerald Wirth from the story about the little interplanetary traveller who sets out to make some new friends.
This latest version now includes an additional role: a singing narrator, played here by the celebrated tenor Michael Schade.
This is a live recording of a production staged at MuTh.

Five years of MuTh
A documentary (in German) about the first five years of MuTh.
This documentary by Hermann Aichwalder is a record on film of a voyage through time. It chronicles the journey that started with the building of the Vienna Boys’ Choir’s music centre, MuTh, at the Augartenspitz, right up to the present day.
The Director of MuTh, Elke Hesse, serves as our guide in the film, leading us through interviews with planners, technicians and artists. There are contributions from many fellow-travellers who accompanied us on the MuTh journey. They offer interesting insights and share their stories about how this musical venue became a success. In the process, they illustrate the glorious variety that is the essence of the venue and its “players”.
With: Elke Hesse, Gerald Wirth, Peter Pühringer, Georg Breinschmid, Volkhard Steude, Otto Jankovich, Harald Godula, Franz and Matthias Bartolomey and many more.
