    • Synopsis
    • On behalf of the Musikkollegium Winterthur, Syquali Multimedia AG is producing a longtime- documentary of the project. In collaboration with music schools, schools and the children’s composition class, the opera will be written, composed and performed by 750 Swiss children from the city of Winterthur (canton of Zurich). Over a period of one year (May 2011 through May 2012), the children will develop and produce the opera.
      The entire process of bringing the opera to stage will be thoroughly shown in the documentary, with the special emphasis on what great efforts it takes to produce an entire opera from the very beginning until it is ready for the public. The life-premiere takes place at the Theater Winterthur on May 12 and 13 in 2012.
