Frau Holle provides snow flurries and perfect weather for flower meadows. But without a helping hand, the workload proves too much for the dotty old weather woman. Already the original fairytale by the Brothers Grimm focuses on the need for helpers – irrespective of them being lazy or industrious – any kind of assistance is welcome! Because what would we do if it were never to snow again? Together with four school classes, a singer and two musicians, JOiN develops the basics of the children’s opera Holle! which will be first premiered this season.
