In 2018 many adults and children alike have trodden the mosaics of the Opéra Comique for the first time during “Mon premier festival d’opéra” (My first opera festival). In 2019 this event is back with three productions intended for families as an introduction to the delights of music and singing. The Opéra Comique is doing its best to make these moments an unforgettable experience and offers a playful introduction before performances and the opportunity to meet the artists.

Two Chinese tales by Chen Jiang Hong, The Tiger Prince and The Magic Horse of Han Gan, told with music and illustrated by the author and cartoonist of children’s books. The characters come to life through the power of drawing thanks to a stage device inspired by pop-ups. The stage becomes an open book.
