    Event Info

    “Drei miese, fiese Kerle” A new children’s opera, performed at the Semperoper in Dresden, by French-Lebenese Composer Zad Moultaka, based on the German children’s book by the same name

    Konrad lives with his parents in a beautiful house. Unfortunately, it’s located in a dreadfully haunted area, where the Fat Monster, the Pale Nightmare and the Ghost are up to no good. Then Konrad gets sick and tired of it all: armed with anti-ghost balls, he heads for the sooty castle where the three guys live. Luckily, he meets the mysterious checkered cat, who knows just how to outsmart the nasty guys … Best known for his »Sams« books, Paul Maar’s »Drei miese, fiese Kerle« is a cheeky tale of courage rewarded for children aged five and up. And it proved to be the perfect inspiration for Lebanese-French composer Zad Moultaka. In 2019, he created an entertaining and colorful composition that brings to life – both visually and aurally – the fantastic world of Paul Maar (or Konrad?), complete with ghosts and a checkered cat.
