For yet another collaboration, Toi Toi and ŻiguŻajg have teamed up to introduce young audiences to the marvellous world of opera.

Our story starts at Teatru Manoel, the National Theatre of Malta, where a young boy has fallen asleep during the opera. When he wakes up, he has a baton in his hands. Unaware of its purpose, he starts waving it around, hoping something exciting happens. Next thing he knows, he’s been transported to a strange place surrounded by very vocal strangers…

Toi Toi u ŻiguŻajg jintroduċu d-dinja miraveljuża tal-opera.

L-istorja tagħna tibda fit-Teatru Manoel, it-Teatru Nazzjonali ta’ Malta, hekk kif tifel żgħir tmur għajnu bih f’nofs Opera li kien qed jsegwi. Meta jqum, jirrealizza li għandu baketta f’idu. Għalkemm ma jkollux idea x’għandu jagħmel biha, jibda jxejjirha ‘l hemm u ‘l hawn bit-tama li jseperjenza xi ħaġa eċċitanti. Kull ma jaf hu li stenbah f’post stramb mdawwar bi stranġieri vokali ħafna….
