Fairy Tale Rock Opera—snoWWhite
“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?” the wicked stepmother asks her treacherous mirror. Everybody knows the answer, of course… “You, my queen, are fair; it is true. But Snow-White is a thousand times fairer than you..” But this production presents the well-known story of Snow White in a different format, as “snoWWhite,” a symphonic rock opera for the whole family, for friends, neighbors, students, clubs, and above all, for fairy tale fans of all ages! Ultimately intended as a work for large stages, it is now first shown in a smaller version at the Theater Arlecchino in Basel. Great symphonic music, pulsating rock sounds, and heartfelt melodies—it’s a feast for the ears performed by 18 professional artists who tell, sing, play, and make music from the world-famous fairy tale of the Brothers Grimm. The performance lasts 75 minute (plus a 20-min break). Additional shows are performed at different times on June 11 and 12.
Tickets are CHF 15 for kids, CHF 30 for adults, and CHF 70 for families.
