Does our beloved Pinocchio,

that fictional character who emerged in 1881 from the imagination of Italian journalist and writer Carlo Collodi and has since entered the pantheon of children’s literature, still require any form of introduction? The first lines of his Adventures are enough to set the scene: “Once upon a time. A King!” my little readers will immediately exclaim. No, children, you are wrong. Once upon a time there was a piece of wood. This “piece of wood”, called “Pinocchio” – which in the old Tuscan dialect spoken by the carpenter Geppetto means “little gable” – inspired the German composer Gloria Bruni to write a children’s opera based on a libretto by best-selling author Ursel Scheffler, which was first presented to the public in 2008 at the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg. The work, which quickly became a ‘classic’, was adapted into Italian in 2013 for the San Carlo in Naples and then the Teatro Regio in Parma. It is presented here for the first time in French.

Wishing to shed light on the sometimes difficult daily lives of certain children, the Opéra de Lausanne is delighted to offer 300 seats to several associations in the canton of Vaud for the performance of Pinocchio on Saturday 8 April 2023.
