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.
