MIDTÅSEN CHILDREN FESTIVAL JULY 12 - 24

We’re talking about FANTASIA! Let your fantasy flourish when you take part in the walking theatre performance and experience new images in the lovely nature at Midtåsen – just like Pictures at an exhibition! The painter Claude Måne leads you on a tour that starts at the nice viewpoint in front of the villa – where he began painting the full moon over the fiord last year – leads you via The old Castle and the chickens in the courtyard, introduce you to The girl with the flaxen hair on our way to the green Monet-bridge and the waterlilies in the pond. With a kind of horror-mixed joy you should really look forward to meeting Baba Yaga!

It is quite scary to see Prince Tamino coming running breathless through the forest at Midtåsen – followed by an evil fire-breathing dragon. Fortunately, he meets Papageno – a nice and lively fellow – who’s job is to catch birds for The Queen of the Night. He helps Tamino to find a girlfriend – a Princess – but would really like to find a nice girl for himself as well… The Magic Flute that Tamino gets as a gift helps him through all kinds of dangerous situations – and a glockenspiel makes Papageno able to get rid of the most vicious creatures.

Ten professional singers perform the musical fairy-tale together with The Three Boys, Pap-Pap-children, a flautist and a pianist……and the fire-breathing dragon!
