Puccini: La fanciulla del West

There are many strong women in the world of opera, and some of the most significant are found in the operas of Puccini. On this list of great heroines we find Minnie - the focal point of Puccini's masterpiece La fanciulla del West.

Minnie is the owner of the local bar in a rough, poor town. Here, every day is about survival and about finding happiness despite life's hardships. Amidst the harsh life in the small town, Minnie manages to add a little colour to the world and create a small breathing space for the exhausted workers.

But Minnie's oasis is threatened when she falls in love with an outlaw on the run and has to fight for her love and for the chance to start a new life with her love by her side.

La fanciulla del West is conducted by Alexander Vedernikov who will become The Royal Danish Orchestra's Chief Conductor in 2018.

Svitlana Azarova: Momo and the Time-Thieves

One day a strange little girl appears in a quiet little town. Her name is Momo and she is alone in the world. The townspeople soon discover that there is something special about Momo: She does not say a great deal, but when she listens, the most beautiful music starts to play and everyone, who is angry or sad, becomes happy again.

Soon, however, strange things start to happen all over town. Strange grey men appear and as more and more arrive, the adults of the town seem to have less and less time on their hands. Momo discovers that the Grey Men are stealing the townspeople's time, and that she is the only one who can see them. She decides to take on the Grey Men and soon receives help from an unexpected friend.

Momo and the Time-Thieves is one of the most beloved children's books in Germany. It was written by Michael Ende, who is also the author of The Neverending Story.

Take a trip to the land of fairy tales with your whole family to see Momo bring back the stolen time.

Rossini: The Barber of Seville

The Golden Age of the silent movie in the 1910s and 1920s is the main source of inspiration for prizewinning theatre director Martin Lyngbo's debut as opera director.

True to the feel of the silent movies, this production promises speed and chaos as the young count tries to capture the heart of his beloved Rosina and spirit her away from her over-ambitious guardian, Don Bartolo.

In Martin Lyngbo's interpretation, Il barbiere di Siviglia becomes a tale of empathy and humanity in an age of tyranny, where everyone has their own agenda. There will be chaos and love, vengeance and celebration, pride and shame, feast and failure accompanied by laughter, smiles, anger and irritation.

Eva Noer Kondrup: The Traveller

In September 2015 a large number of refugees crossed the Danish border and walked North on the freeway towards Sweden. This event resulted in a heated media debate and political actions, which - among other things - the control at the Danish border.

In The Traveller, composer and librettist Eva Noer Kondrup has focused on refugees. The opera was created from memories recorded by refugee children from the former Yugoslavia, a pivotal quote from political current affairs on refugees, and a classic frame story as seen in the Odin Teatret's production of Bertolt Brecht's Mutter Courage and Her Children.

The music of the piece finds inspiration in folk music traditions of the Middle East and the Balkans as well as in Klezmer music with accordion, double bass and percussion, combining an easily recognizable sound with surprising elements and classic composition techniques.

The award winning lighting designer Jesper Kongshaug will create the set design, and Ida Fogh Kiberg will be making her debut as stage director.
