A Musical Fairytale for Kids (3–10 years) and Family

Take a dab of fairy dust, three musicians from the wind ensemble Federspiel, combine them with a contrabass player and two mountain fairies in distress—and a magical musical fairytale for the entire family is ready! 

The two mountain fairies DoReMi and FaSolLa are going on a journey. The destination of their flight is the big party of the fireflies. 

But at the welcoming concert of the four musicians everything suddenly goes wrong! The fairies’ usual travel magic spell doesn’t work, and the misfortunes begin…

Is there black magic at play here when you hear Ho-Ri-Ti-Ä, when the stubborn trombone transforms into a frog, when the arrogant trumpter runs out of breath, when the rebellious clarinet gets frittered away, and when the melancholic contrabass can’t find the right mood?

And most importantly: When are the fireflies finally going to arrive? 

Will it all work out in the end? Will the journey of the mountain fairies, with all of its musical turbulence, still conclude in a fairy-tastic grand finale? 

The music and libretto for this fanciful, adventuresome, and witty musical fairytale were composed by the three talented Federspiel members Philip Haas, Matthias Werner, and Frédéric Alvarado-Dupuy as well as the two mountain fairies and experienced music educators Esther Planton and Veronika Prünster (auf:takt Kultur). Your participation is very welcome!

Twice per year children’s musical theatre productions with renowned musicians invite you to the Klangraum Krems to discover the special atmosphere and acoustics of the medieval Minorite Church.
