Wo die wilden Kerle wohnen

for young & all aged 6 and above

Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s book Wo die wilden Kerle wohnen has been a favourite with generations of children for decades. The story begins with a situation we are all familiar with: an argument between mother and son leaves young Max angry and rebellious. But he gathers all his courage and sets off on a big adventure during which he bravely confronts monsters of many kinds – taking us along with him … Performed by superb soloists and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, this first production of the opera in Austria is staged by puppeteer and director Nikolaus Habjan. Accompanying Max to the Wild Things is not the only adventure here: the magical world of musical theatre and all it has to offer is also there to be discovered. Epic opera – wild, bold and monstrous!
