Dance and music workshop: The Secret Kingdom

in the Volksschule Pfeilgasse 11–15 December 2017


The Secret Kingdom is a fairy-tale opera by Ernst Krenek that stands in the focus of this workshop. After an introduction to Krenek and his musical works, various musical-theatrical scenes from the opera will be extracted and danced by the pupils. The fairy-tale, which has to do with a king who wants to give up his position and secretly flees into nature, will be discussed in the class and interpreted. The pupils also develop their own small musical sequences, resulting in a mosaic of different scenes that lead to an autonomous performance.Veronika Grossberger, music educatorKatharina Weinhuber, choreography
