About

It’s the kid’s birthday. The party’s a little spoiled, Dad’s not here. He’s going to have to “stay away from home longer than expected”. But he sent a gift. Nice, a box of toy soldiers! Oops, one’s broken. It’s missing something… To the rhythm of the beating drums, to forget the absence of the Father and the sobs of the Mother, the Boy and his tin Soldier escape, away from the four walls from the kid’s room. Caught up in turn by nightmares and dreams, but never by reality.

Jérémie Rhorer, Jan Sobrie and Fabienne Vegt transform The fearless Tin Soldier, the famous tale of the Hans Christian Andersen, in a contemporary story where the young hero overcomes a messy divorce through a crazy and colorful adventure, involving a jumble of broken toys, a grand piano and a real ballerina. And what was just a simple “once upon a time” becomes an opera where the imagination is a weapon that helps surpass the conflicts of adults.
