Forget about magic beans and bowls of porridge—this fairy tale is a “down-to-the-wire” thriller, inspired by the Brothers Grimm. A paranoid king banishes his twelve sons in favor of Lyra, the thirteenth child. When Princess Lyra learns about her long-lost brothers, she embarks on a quest to find them. Like all the best fairy tales, it has an enchanted forest, riddles, a handsome prince, a horrible mistake, and a nearly impossible feat for Princess Lyra to perform if everything is to be put right.

Poul Ruders is one of today’s most highly acclaimed composers. His operatic setting of The Handmaid’s Tale has been hailed as “a riveting, kaleidoscopic score” by The New York Times. To be conducted by Paul Daniel and directed by Darko Tresnjak, The Thirteenth Child is Ruders’ fifth opera and our sixteenth world premiere.

Don’t miss it, especially if you want to live happily ever after!
