Papagena chases the bat

An adventure trip through the world of opera for children from 6 to 9 years of age
Duration: approx. 90 minutes (no break)

 

Prince Orlofsky invites our little guests to a birthday party in his opera house, when a mysterious bat is visible. Immediately Papagena, the best bird catcher of all time, is there and the hunt begins. The adventure, which takes the children to musical stations in dressing rooms, break rooms, to the gallery, the backstage, the dark understage, to corridors and stairways, can be performed either by the Papagena team - the majority of the music here comes from the Magic Flute - or by Prince Orlofsky's team using the ingredients of the bat. A mobile instrumental ensemble accompanies the singers and the children on their interactive journey.

Theater an der Wien

About the Theater an der Wien

The New Opera House is not just any theatre, but the one that Emanuel Schikaneder, the all-round genius, actor, impresario with a flair for organization but above all librettist of The Magic Flute, had built in 1801 in Vienna in keeping with the spirit of Mozart.

To coincide with the 250th anniversary of Mozart’s birth the Theater an der Wien presents itself as a new opera house from January 2006. As a “season” opera house with productions all the year round the Theater an der Wien carves a new and independent niche in the realm of high-quality culture in Vienna. For twelve months of the year, with one premiere every month, opera will be performed under the “stagione”, or season, system: that means the cast remains unchanged from the first performance to the last one, which guarantees that the very highest international standards are maintained.

The theatre’s modern, accessible approach to music theatre as demonstrated by the works performed, the overall artistic concept Bespielung and the artistes is further underlined by the building itself, its architecture and the vibrancy of its location. The surroundings and materials, the intimate atmosphere and perfect acoustics in the historical theatre prepare the senses to experience beauty. The Theater an der Wien deliberately enters into a symbiotic relationship with its lively surroundings on the Naschmarkt street market and the young cultural scene centred in the Schleifmühl quarter.
