MUSICAL THEATRE FOR TINY TOTS (2+)
Ever imagined the sound of an itch (kriebel) … in your belly? What would happen if that itch crept up your throat and slipped out of your mouth? If it flew through the air and landed – plop! – on the viola, then jumped – pling! – inside the marimba?"
Colourful world of sound
A violin-playing singer, a dancing percussionist and a singing dancer take young audiences on a playful potpourri of dance, music and voice. Kriebel (‘Itch’) is a fun-filled musical theatre experience for tiny tots about the irrepressible, infectious and colourful world of sound.
During the autumn school holiday.
Age: 2-4 years
Location: Odeonzaal, Dutch National Opera & Ballet
Composer and conductor Leonard Evers’ work fuses elements from jazz and world and contemporary music. Most of his compositions are for musical theatre and include the youth opera Gold!, written for Theater Sonnevanck, published by Boosey & Hawkes and staged all over Germany. At Dutch National Opera, Evers conducted the youth productions A Dog’s Heart and The Boy Who Grew Too Fast.
