The Three Riddles
In Detlev Glanert's children's opera Lasso has to win the hand of Princess Sharade to become king. But first he has to ask her three riddle questions, which she cannot answer. The special feature: In this music theatre, mainly children play and make music for young and old.
Since 2013 the cooperation project ‹Orchesterschule Insel› exists, which enables all interested pupils of the primary school Insel to learn a string instrument for free. The children are taught weekly by musicians from the Sinfonieorchester Basel, and also develop programmes for the big concert stage together with the professionals.
