The Kästner classic, a fabulous Berlin story and the most successful crime story for children of all time, will come to the stage in January 2017. It's about the strength of children and their ability to show solidarity: together we can move mountains! Sinem Altan, most recently awarded the European Composer Prize in 2015, will take over the musical direction.



For the first time, Emil Tischbein is allowed to travel to Berlin alone. His smart cousin Pony Hütchen and his grandmother wait in vain for him at Friedrichstrasse train station. Because Emil has already plunged into an exciting chase. Across the big city, always after the villain Grundeis, who stole his money on the train. Luckily he soon gets support: from Gustav with the horn and his boys.


The exciting story becomes a musical theater festival: ten participants appear through scenic songs, choral speaking and body percussion and play live the instruments cello, violin, accordion and charango (Bolivian string instrument) as well as the percussion instruments Urdu, Djembe and Darbuka.
