Nils Holgerssons wunderbare Reise
Nach der Erzählung von Selma Lagerlöf
- Anno Schreier Composition
- Alexander Jansen Libretto
Transformed into a little tomte because of his cheeky pranks, Nils Holgersson sets off on a wonderful journey on the back of the tame domestic goose Martin and in the midst of a flock of wild geese. Together they experience exciting adventures and learn what true friendship means. This year, the big participatory project »Singing with class!« revolves around the well-known story by Selma Lagerlöf.
Over a period of two months, 300 children in the second year of school will work on the work composed especially for them under the guidance of singing instructors, which will be performed at the end in two concerts with the Gürzenich Orchestra Cologne.
Second graders interested in participating in the children's choir can get more information by calling (0221) 20408 355 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
