Fux, du hast den Tanz gestohlenshare on facebook
A production for chidren from age 6 with music by Johann Joseph Fux and folk music from the time of Fux
With the Fux.OPERNFEST vol. 1 in the summer of 2018, the styriarte started to forge a link between the baroque master Johann Joseph Fux and the historical folk music of his hometown Hirtenfeld near Graz. The ensemble “Die fidelden Hirtenfelder” entertained the guests of the opera celebration with Styrian dances. This year, we take up this idea in a programme for children. Elisabeth Bauer tells the story of the Styrian farmer’s boy Johann Joseph Fux, who made it to the Viennese court as the court conductor. The baroque recreation orchestra, identical to the “fidelen Hirtenfelder” ensemble from last year, add their passionate music. Naturally, the audience will dance and sing along, making the concert a true pleasure.
