“What makes a good children’s opera? It needs playfulness and imagination – that immediate appeal and freedom of movement that opens up in the moment. And, of course, it needs melodies that effortlessly make the language begin to sing. All of this is present in Johanna Fridolfsson och Malin Aghed’s The Sand Wolf, based on Åsa Lind’s trilogy of books about the friendship between a little girl, Zackarina, and the fearless Sand Wolf, with his alert ears, inquisitive nose and sand-coloured fur that glitters like gold.” Göteborgs-Posten
Zackarina lives in a house by the sea with her parents. From the sand on the beach, she digs out a new friend, the clever Sand Wolf. While playing together, they explore life’s big questions. This poetic story deals with both the everyday and the existential, with humour and warmth.
The children’s opera The Sand Wolf is based on Åsa Lind’s award-winning, August Prize-nominated trilogy of books. The role of the Sand Wolf is played by opera singer Åke Zetterström. Zackarina is played by musical artist Hanna Brehmer.
