Opera for young audiences has long been an important area for the Wiener Staatsoper, and one on which it has always focused particular attention. Premières of new works are also a regular occurrence – as in the case of the children’s opera Patchwork in the current season. This work commissioned by the Wiener Staatsoper tells the story of two families who eventually manage to arrange a patchwork life together. The composer of this new work is Tristan Schulze, already familiar to young operagoers in Vienna thanks to his adaptation of Undine a few years ago, and the librettist Johanna Von Der Deken, who has already written the text for the opera Das Städtchen Drumherum. The opera will be per-formed by members of the Wiener Staatsoper ensemble as well as pupils of the opera school.
