The lonely mole decides to write a song to cheer the moon up. The grasshopper rehearses with his orchestra until they master the song. And then one night they deliver a beautiful concert. But why does the moon look so sad afterwards...? Een lied voor de maan (A Song for the Moon) is based on the children’s book of the same name by the famous Dutch author Toon Tellegen, known for his short animal stories full of strange situations with philosophical dimensions. With this work, the Dutch composer Mathilde Wantenaar (°1993) has written her first large- scale opera, specially for a young audience. A Song for the Moon touches on important topics such as loneliness, identity, disappointment and friendship, but it is also a work about the power of music and the possibility of making contact with each other.
