Musical narrative about the Turkish Till Eulenspiegel figure (4+)

Whoever loves "Peter and the Wolf" or "Till Eulenspiegel" will also be thrilled by this oriental rogue story.


The naive farmer boy Keloglan (Turkish for: bald boy) lives with his mother in poor conditions. One day he succeeds in making a nice catch on the hunt, which a band of robbers immediately takes away from him. But Keloglan can outwit the robbers and bring the delicious prey home.

However, he soon attracts the sultan's wrath and gets into captivity. Here too he knows how to free himself with wit - and even dreams of marrying the beautiful Gül.

Thomas Sutter has adapted the material, which is enormously successful in the Turkish cultural circle, for the young audience in the tent stage. Sinem Altan equips the Turkish fairy tale with the appropriate music and lets Carsten Klatte (plucked instruments) and Claudia Renner (known from "The Little Mermaid") tell the roguish story in a way that is as funny as it is playful.
