The Thirteenth Child
A Fairytale Opera by Poul Ruders
Libretto by Becky & David Starobin
after a story by The Brothers Grimm
In 2016 Poul Ruders completed The Thirteenth Child, his fifth opera. The composer of 'The Handmaid's Tale, and Selma Jezkova (after the film, Dancer in the Dark) has created a heartbreakingly beautiful fantasy about a child's search for family and destiny. "The Thirteenth Child" will be produced by Denmark's new Odeon Theater in 2019.
