Operetta for Kids
Operetta for Kids is a new project since its foundation in 1957. The current Artistic Director Peter Edelmann is from an opera family with great tradition. He has started this project to spread the happiness and richness of SM's (Seefestspiele Mörbisch) production to our kids, in order to continue the legacy of German speaking performing arts.
In 2018, special performances for children have been offered. A one-hour version of the Countess Mariza was shown in June 2018 on a special stage on the festival premises in altogether six performances. More than 3000 children are benefited from this project.
On 24, 25 and 26 of June 2019, the special edition of "The Land of Smile" will take place. In each performance, visitors will also get the opportunity to sing and dance along. This is intended to bring operetta closer to the children. The same soloists as in the regular performances will be seen on stage.
