The Brave Little Tailor (Das tapfere Schneiderlein)
Children’s opera, based on a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm / A Wiener Taschenoper production

Repeat production

The Brothers Grimm classic, staged as an opera for children. A cheerful hero sets out into the great wide world. He conquers wild boar, a unicorn and giants, and thus he wins the hand of the princess and with her the kingdom.

“Musical theatre with humour — and free from platitudes” was the verdict in the Wiener Zeitung. And with regard to the music, Die Presse commented that composer Wolfgang Mitterer produces “… tangible sound worlds, which always create the right mood and are enjoyed by the little ones — you can hear their pleasure.”

Recommended for families with children aged six and over.
