The story of a wise mouse inventing a beast to protect himself from his enemies before suddenly encountering the real Gruffalo has been one of the most popular children’s books for nearly two decades now. Just like in the book, the mouse meets the fox, the owl, the snake and finally the Gruffalo on the opera stage. Iván Fischer has assigned a specific instrument to each figure. Two narrators open the performance with a prologue and then guide the audience through the story.
