The Great Doctor’s Tale


Opera for children in four acts performed in Slovak

The historical SND building
31. 3. 2020 11:00 h - 12:45 h

Curious developments occure in the dreaming mind of the mysterious doctor. He is reviving the Waterman, Fairy Amálka, Wizzard Magiáš, Dwarf, Heehaw, and other fairy-tale creatures. In his opera, Slovak composer Milan Dubovský looked at the “grey reality” of grown-up life through children’s eyes. What he saw, he narrated through the language of unlimited opportunities of child imagination which the grownups have long forgotten.
