DOMINO - DomStufen-Festpiele for Children 2022
Findus leads a lovely life with Pettersson at the chicken farm, “because nothing is better for the souls of us jolly cats than making trouble for the chickens”. But in this children’s opera, the popular cat has to cope with a competitor! Ever since Pettersson saved the rooster Caruso from being cooked by his neighbour Gustavsson, he has literally ruled the roost as far as the chickens are concerned. But it’s not just that – the cat doesn’t get a moment of peace anymore, because Caruso crows all the time at the top of his voice. Even Pettersson seems to be getting fed up with it. So Findus adopts a cunning plan, which does bring peace and quiet, but also makes him realise that it’s difficult to live with a lie. How can the Caruso problem be solved to everyone’s satisfaction?
In a wonderfully varied opera production, Niclas Ramdohr and Holger Potocki do credit to the velvet-pawed cat. The opera is full of fun throughout, so that the audience, both children and adults, is captivated by its magic from the first bar.
