After last year’s very successful debut with Haydn’s The desert island (L’isola disabitata), Moltopera will perform in Hungarian State Opera in the next season, too. The new premiere,The Hopping from the Seraglio, a children’s opera is directed by János Novák.
Moltopera debuted in the Hungarian State Opera on 23rd November 2014 with the Zsófi Geréb-directed The desert island and was very successful not only according to critics, but also according to the Opera House’s management. Hungarian State Opera has not only asked Moltopera to keep on performing The desert island during the next season, but also to present a new opera.
The new piece is a children’s version of the well-known opera of W. A. Mozart, The Abduction from the Seraglio. Although ’The Desert Island’ aims also on teenagers, the new premiere is for children between 6 and 10 years. It is directed by the Jászai Mari Award-laureate János Novák, head of Kolibri Theatre, and conducted by the Lantos Rezső-prize awarded Csaba Tőri. The cast, as always, will be composed from young singers between the age of 20 and 35 who will have to face some extraordinary challenges.
