Opera-ballet for children

Opera-ballet for children


Target audience: children 6-10 years

During the 2017 season, director/choreographer Véronique Lenaers will work with scenographer Dirk Van Vaerenbergh to create an opera-ballet performance for children between the ages of 6 and 10 years. It will be an irresistible mix of a romantic ballet, Coppélia, with the music from the opera Don Pasquale.

Dr Pasqualius is the most famous puppet maker in the country. He makes puppets in all sizes, large, small, fat, thin AND they are all excellent dancers. But secretly, Dr Pasqualius is in love with his most beautiful puppet, Coppélia.

One day, however, he receives a special gift from his greatest competitor, Dr Donizetti, namely a puppet that can sing, but not dance.

At first, he doesn't like the puppet very much. When he notices, however, how extraordinary everyone things she is and a young man even falls in love with her, he decides to marry her.

But Coppélia, Norina and Ernesto decide to stop him. They come up with a cunning plan to fool the elderly Dr Pasqualius. Are you curious to see whether they can pull it off?

Then come see our new, cool, swinging children’s opera, with music by Donizetti, ballet from Coppélia, a magic house, a crazy old fool and loads of puppets.
