MIDTÅSEN CHILDREN FESTIVAL
JULY 13 – 25.

Ludvig and Ludwig – lovers of nature! was a great success at Midtåsen last year. Ludwig van Beethoven, for whom we celebrated his 250th anniversary, met with the second most famous Ludvig in the whole world – Ludvig from Flåklypa! That means that we also celebrated Kjell Aukrusts 100th anniversary. Please join us and enjoy Ludvig/Ludwig – and a wonderful crowd of young musicians and dancers – ­ who present the music by the two main characters and of Beethoven’s contemporary composers Haydn, Mozart and Schubert. All nicely situated as a Scene by the brook.

In 1787, as a 16 years old boy, Beethoven travelled from Bonn to Vienna to study with W. A. Mozart. For that reason we find it very nice to present Mozart fairy tale about The Magic Flute alongside the story of Ludwig himself. Prince Tamino is lost in the forest and suddenly realize that he is chased by a vicious dragon! Fortunately, he meets Papageno – another lover of nature – and then the fairy tale begins!
