The Robber Hotzenplotz

by Andreas Schilling
Singspiel in 5 acts
Text by the composer after Otfried Preußler
Vocals by Verena Guido
in german
Who has not heard of the robber Hotzenplotz? He first steals grandmother's new coffee grinder which plays such beautiful music whilst grinding. Then Hotzenplotz lures Seppel and Kasperl into a trap taking them both prisoners. What’s more, the villain then sells poor Kasperl to the great and evil magician Petrosilius Zwackelmann – or is it Seppel he is selling? It does not matter. In any case, it takes a fair amount of courage, magic and the combined help by the audience to rescue the two friends. Composer Andreas Schilling has newly composed Otfried Preußler's enchanting story in time for Preußler’s 100th birthday as a Singspiel between Threepenny Opera and Balkan rhythms.
