Opera for children (target 6-10 years)

Children's opera N.E.R.O.

The 8-year-old Jetro goes to stay with his grandma and grandpa. He notices, too late, that the charger for his iPad is still in his parents' car.
Grandpa is a librarian and doesn't know that much about iPads, but in the attic he finds a large box filled with what must be a hundred cables! Jetro diligently starts looking through the box for a charger that fits but instead finds a strange book with the title “LONTANO“. The book is written in a language that Jetro does not understand, and he takes off on an adventure to that faraway land.
Along the way, he gets lost in an underwater garden, and there he meets some strange characters: a Boss Player, a Yes-man, some Bad Boys, the Persnickety Aunts and the beautiful Sirens.
But it is only when he arrives in Lontano that he understands what the word means.
He runs home to tell grandma and grandpa about his adventures and arrives just in time for his own surprise birthday party with you as his special guests!
