Dance evening by Mei Hong Lin, music by Sergei Prokofiev

A young girl emancipates herself by virtue of her own will, with courage and the support of magical powers, finds her happiness - and also marries the prince. And if they did not die ... Mei Hong Lin in her version of Cinderella proves that the well-known quote from Schubert's Wanderer, "where you are not, there is happiness" need not apply. She calls for courage to take active control of your life and to question it anew. In doing so, she owes nothing to Cinderella's story. Nothing is impossible if you believe in it!

The Troubadour

Il trovatore, Verdi's most popular opera, tells a bizarre, wild story from the Middle Ages, which is energetically fueled by excessive hatred, lust for revenge, war cries, but also by romantic love and self-sacrificing devotion. Thanks to his intensely glowing music, however, Giuseppe Verdi manages to make the people of this opera very close and conquer all of us, despite the incredible events they have to go through.
