“These are five operas for children. Treated as a joke. One could hardly call them operas in earnest. This is musical theatre for children. Literally, the target age is 6+. Psychological or therapeutic fairy-tales for family viewing. Each opera is no longer than ten minutes. All the music and all the texts were composed by students themselves. We did not use one single live instrument. Just like a garage band we mixed it in a makeshift studio. On the stage there are benches and a huge wardrobe from whence all the frighteners appear that children adore. All fairy-tales have a happy ending, they are therapeutic after all. All the stories feature a common narrator. He is a psychologist in need of psychological assistance.” – Tatiana Burel.
