There are only two actors on the stage. But the story, which they relate in catchy, jazz-flavoured tunes, says it all. Ultimately, it’s about the meaning of life.

After all, who wouldn’t like to have a fish that could grant your every wish? Shoes. A house. A palace with servants; a beach edged with palms; endless pizza and chips. And this is what actually happens to young Jacob and his parents. Everything can be so much finer, bigger, better … Inspired by the fairy tale of “The fisherman and his wife”, author Flora Verbrugge and composer Leonard Evers have written a poetic, profound opera for children on the theme of good fortune.

Libretto by Flora Verbrugge, after the Brothers Grimm
