A children’s opera is being written in Baden-Baden based on the great opera Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss, in cooperation with the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden and the Deutsche Bank Foundation’s “Akademie Musiktheater heute”. The story will be told for children in a completely new way on the basis of a new musical arrangement, musically accompanied by the musicians of the Berliner Philharmoniker. The main roles will be sung by voice students at the music conservatories of Baden-Wuerttemberg, the directing team composed of scholarship recipients of “Akademie Musiktheater heute”. All around, a creative project for young talents which is striking out in an exciting new direction.
