About the performance

It is the version of the Brothers Grimm that has inspired young composer Stefano Guagnini and director Davide Garattini Raimondi to create the libretto for this brand new “operatic tale”. Whilst they do justice to the original story, a breath of fresh air blows through this adaptation in which the audience will be actively involved, particularly by playing opposite the Brothers Grimm in person!

Magic and pleasure will be the ingredients of this captivating performance, leading the young spectators through a forest were very unusual encounters take place…
