From the age of 6 up.

Lyman Frank Baum’s world-famous fairytale as an exciting, imaginative and continually surprising piece of musical theatre for the whole family. With plenty of wit, heart and courage, one of the most charming groups of friends in all of children’s literature go on a dangerous adventure in the magical kingdom of the Wizard of Oz.

A cyclone on the plains of Kansas carries away the house containing little Dorothy and her dog Toto to the far-off land of Oz. This is the home of talking mice, flying monkeys, good and wicked witches, and a mysterious wizard. It is said that only he can show Dorothy the way back home to Kansas. In her magic shoes and accompanied by her three strange and lovable new friends, Dorothy makes her way to the legendary Emerald City. Will the wizard help and truly grant the greatest wishes of the four friends? Will he finally give the cheeky scarecrow a brain, the tin man a loving heart, and the cowardly lion his long-yearned-for courage? And does the wizard really know the way back home to Dorothy’s aunt and uncle? On their journey to the Emerald City, the companions face trials and great dangers that can only be overcome together by true friends.

After Pinocchio and The Snow Queen, Pierangelo Valtinoni’s The Wizard of Oz marks the third time that a work by this Italian composer graces the stage of the Komische Oper Berlin – with orchestral music ranging from jazz to grand opera, children’s choir ensembles and truly fairytale-like “magic moments”!
