Life is surreal, both on stage and in reality. Who hasn’t quarrelled with an armchair? Or with a stubborn grandfather clock? We have all loved princesses and torn them apart just to see what is inside. Did the porcelain cup just break out of its own will? How very frustrating!
Besides, what is inside the wallpaper that so invitingly peels off the wall?
Speaking squirrels, sleeping beauties, frogs as chorus singers, scary numbers, tiptoeing curtains, teacups as tourists and screaming flames – what an amazing blend of dreamy revelations and pieces of real life, opera and ballet as well as stage lights and behind the stage sounds.
What about the Mother Goose? Will she manage to squeeze herself on stage or into your dream?
 
“Mother Goose”
World premiere on January 29, 1912 in Théâtre des Arts, Paris
Premiere in the Estonian National Opera on June 18, 2021
 
Music Director: Arvo Volmer
Conductors: Vello Pähn, Kaspar Mänd
Stage Director, Choreographer and Designer: Renate Keerd
Lighting Designer: Siim Reispass
 

“Mother Goose” is a free interpretation of Maurice Ravel’s ballet by a free-lance stage director and choreographer Renate Keerd. According to a French custom, a mother goose is a nickname for a nurse, who tells children fairy-tales. Keerd takes the classical libretto and turns it upside down. Her original story is based on Ravel’s orchestrated version of the piece. In her staging, Keerd concentrates on paradoxes of our lives, mixing it with her fantastic, absurd and witty style.

“Ravel:Ravel” is a game where you can cheat for beauty and where Ravel’s love affair with music ends up in a crazy whirlwind of spectacle, dreamt of by children and yearned for by grown-ups.
