Super Saturday

The Golden Cockerel


Experience a musical discovery day for the whole family

In the company of a worn-out tsar, a cunning astrologer, a wizard-cockerel, and a very attractive queen, spectators, young and old, find themselves swept into the fascinating world of Russian legend. The programme for the afternoon offers discoveries of all sorts: Rimsky-Korsakov’s dazzling music as presented by an outstanding guest, Pushkin’s tale as you have never heard it before, and the painstaking work of costume designers – from the first sketches to the choice of cloth and the carefully planned work of sewing. And – who knows? – some magic tricks to make your head spin.
