Korall koral is a performance created specifically for children below the age of three and their adult companions. They are coaxed by noise into a shell-shaped tent in the Opera Foyer, where two performers with specially designed instruments create music and song. The instruments resemble sea creatures; there are weird creatures such as the sea horse harp, the bagpipe tunicate, the glass chime jellyfish and the flatworm flute. In this opera, babies and adults are on equal terms. Nothing needs to be explained or understood, only experienced.
After the performance, children and adults are invited to explore the room and the instruments independently.
Korall koral has been performed in ten countries to over 17,000 people.
Korall koral is a co-production between Dieserud/ Lindgren, The Norwegian Opera & Ballet and Riksteatret. Supported by Arts Council Norway, NOTAM, the Fund for Performing Artists and the Fund for Sound and Image.
