Michael, a hero from space, discovers the Earth, in a succession of countries and continents. During his journey, he meets Mondeva, a creature from another planet with whom he falls in love. The two will eventually fly to another planet.
In this work, designed as a concerto for trumpet, the soloists speak with their instruments and are staged as in an unspoken opera. Their characters are portrayed by the music and sounds that call to mind a kiss, the clicking of a tongue or the hissing of a snake.
Through a preparatory work that presents the characters and the instruments, the orchestra Le Balcon invites children to discover the fascinating world of composer Karlheinz Stockhausen. 

Michael, trumpet - Henri Deléger 
Orchestra - Le Balcon
Music direction - Maxime Pascal
