Here’s the promised Suite from a Children’s Opera, culled from the 45-minute score to Am Südpol, denkst man, ist es heiß. It’s about penguins and their love for opera, which arrives once a year via the Opera Boat.
I’d love to hear what the winner of the competition sounded like. As far as Google knows, it’s never been recorded, though I have seen a production photo of it. (Think opera singers in full-body penguin suits.) [update: We can actually get tickets here for performances next month.]
As I’ve said, there’s some nice stuff here. Enjoy.
