Maxwell-Davies: The Two Fiddlers

  • Staatsoper Hamburg Große Theaterstraße Hamburg, HH, 20354 Germany (map)

We are in the woods. It is quiet here; it smells of moss and earthworms, moths whirring around. From a distance, music resounds, a wedding song - or is it just buzzing in the mind? It rustles in the foliage. What was that? Tom and Gavin shudder. It simply cannot be possible, that the old tale of trolls in this area is true. But who knows? It’s best to take the quickest way back home! But suddenly Tom and his violin disappear, as if swallowed up by the earth. Was that trrr ... trrr ... trolls? Did the music attract them? Tom's melodies he did with his violin? Tom experiences a crazy night playing for the dancing trolls. As a reward, Tom is granted a wish and he is well-considered! Because life in the village continues and when Tom and Gavin finally meet again, the world is upside down ...
