The chidren`s opera, Cirkusflickan`s Resa (The Journey of a Circus Girl) is about an inner and outer journey. I also wrote the libretto and music for this piece. Two – or possibly more singing parts. A young mezzo (Camilla Lundstedt) and a baritone (Metin Ardel) were thus cast in a successful production that ran for two seasons at Scenkonst Sörmland. The male role is really a whole series of different characters that could conceivably be played by different people, ”The monster under the bed”, ”Summer holidays” and ”Botvid the clown” etc. The score includes music for violin, viola, cello, fute, clarinet, oboe and drums. I could imagine an adaption to the score that would involve other instruments. Here the target audience are primary school children.
