A NEW OPERA FOR CHILDREN: “The Secret of the Gold Queen”

A world premiere of the new one-act fairytale OPERA FOR CHILDREN that teaches kindness and honesty using elements of chess as an inspirational framework. In the story about the Gold and Silver Chess Kingdoms, the lesson taught by the Gold Queen is that winning strength comes from treating everyone with kindness and dignity, rather than from force.

This fairytale, in which chess pieces become the main characters, will ignite the imagination of both young and old. The noble Gold Queen who cultivates peace and harmony in her Gold Chess Kingdom is faced with an unthinkable challenge against the angry and power-hungry Silver King (who used to be kind when he was polished like new but became angry, resentful, and rude as he has become “tarnished” with time).

An unexpected conflict, a mysterious secret, an intrigue, a treacherous plot, daunting anticipation – all will culminate in a dramatic battle of the Gold and Silver Chess Kingdoms, the outcome of which will be a powerful lesson taught by the generous and noble Gold Queen. Follow the music and the storyline of this magic fairytale to the very end, which is, as it should be, a happy one!
