Programme Note

Fantastic Opera in Nine Scenes

In the opera The Children of the Sultan the twins Fadeya and Taseh embark on a journey to the country of Sultania, far away in the desert. It is said that their father, whom they have never met, is the Sultan of this country. But the way to him and his palace is full of dangers. The children encounter a hungry giant snake, are almost washed away by a raging river and must overcome an almost unbreachable wall. On their journey they meet magical characters and omniscient objects. They bravely face all dangers – always accompanied by a talking camel - but will they survive the adventures and find their father?
