About the opera
Often performed at Christmas time in Europe, this opera is a favorite of young and old alike. The characters are relatable and engaging. The complex, Wagner-inspired music carries listeners through diverse moods and atmospheres: from jovial to dreamy, from innocent to suspenseful. Interestingly, this opera began its life as a children’s puppet play, which Librettist Adelheid Wette originally wrote for her family. Her brother wrote a few songs for it. Eventually, they collaborated to transform it into a full opera. It premiered in 1893 under the baton of Richard Strauss.
