New Christmas opera from English wunderkind to be staged in Vienna this December

Post  Lamplighter on Sun Oct 16, 2016 1:53 pm

With help from her skipping rope, Alma Deutscher has written an opera that's being staged this Christmas in Vienna, the capital of classical music. Not bad when you're aged 11 and three-quarters.

"I sometimes think that if I had a beard and I was old and fat then people might take me a bit more seriously," the English "wunderkind" told AFP as she played on the piano excerpts of the work.

It takes place in an imaginary country she calls Transylvanian, populated by imaginary composers.

Right....I am afraid operas written by wunderkind aren't really my thing, LL.....

Transylvanian? better to prepare the vampire fangs to use them while attend the opera.

Very clever Pedro. I have to say though that the child is extremely talented.
