Drop the usual children's opera platitudes, add a liberal measure of cheek – result: a smart musical comedy, young and saucy, just like the brave little people that go about their business here. Do the children today know at all what this fairytale is about? Well, if they don't, Wolfgang Mitterer will bring it home to them, with just a few characteristic instruments: double bass, samples, synthetic sounds. Elisabeth Rombach as the little tailor takes to the road boldly and merrily, parading the famous slogan before all and sundry that cross her path: Seven at one stroke! Shudder! And on top of all the trouble with the giant, the wild boar and the unicorn, the goofy princess (Theresa Dlouhy and her brave coloratura) turns out to be a sore trial to the little tailor... So, is your mouth watering for a fairytale yet? Even old Grimm Brothers can be cool, thanks to Wolfgang Mitterer.
