Schauspielhaus Theater Basel

With the dream of saving the world, a girl goes aboard Captain Nemo's “Nautilus.” But the famous ship has long since degenerated into a museum. The aged crew does everything to make their retirement as pleasant as possible. Attempts at communication come to nothing, they get tangled up in trivialities, but they are all in the same boat.
The internationally renowned mask theatre group Familie Flöz spins a poetic and absurdly funny tale of silent play and musical fantasy language. Singers and an instrumental ensemble bring the mysterious world of the sea to life. Based on motifs from “20 000 Leagues Under the Sea” by Jules Verne and with music by Erik Satie and Daniel Ott, this opera is for families with children from age 8.
Tickets are CHF 30-50.
