Zsófia Tallér

Leander and Linseed


Fairy-tale opera in two parts, in Hungarian
  •  
Fairy Tale Opera Premiere at the Erkel Theatre! The tale of Leander the goblin and Princess Linseed, brimming with magic and a seemingly unbreakable curse, not to mention a wealth of twists and turns, is a genuinely good yarn. Set to a libretto by Barnabás Szöllősi that is based on Andor Szilágyi's fable for the theatre and written at the Opera's request, Erkel Prize-winning composer Zsófia Tallér's masterful, expressive and entertaining music makes this new Hungarian fairy tale opera an enjoyable experience for children and adults alike, and, we hope, a possible future classic.
