Thinking of music theatre Astria Oboe Trio asked Erik Desimpelaere to compose music for a children’s performance. Erik chose the fairy tales of Godfried Bomans as they also address adults because of their archaic style and the many double meanings. The combination of storytelling and music creates an atmosphere of “leit motives”, a filmic opera approach whereby the fairy tales are being translated into sound.
There are 6 self-contained fairy tales; too many for one performance, but they can be combined in a flexible way, depending on the target public.
