Suite from a Children’s Opera

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.

  1. Overture
  2. A Cold Life
  3. Requiem for a Violin
  4. It’s Here!
  5. Ballet
  6. Young Love
  7. Valentine
  8. Music!!
  9. Coda

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.
