Where's the sandwich? is a reality-based story about how it's okay to be just the way you are, signed by one of the Sweden´s most loved children's book author, Pija Lindenbaum, and the composer Niklas Brommare.
Meeting Pija and Niklas and working with them has been a great experience. Making an opera for a child audience is ambitious and when I read the first graders' feedback I am impressed and at the same time convinced of the importance of cultural education. This is Carl's first opera direction, although it doesn't show in any way from his work. The performers dance and sing opera comfortably, i.e. out of breath and listening to the orchestra. It is not a given. Carl knows how to create an atmosphere in the work group where everyone dares to throw themselves. For us, this is the 17th collaboration and let the work continue.
Var är smörgåsen is performed in Swedish and is intended for children aged 5 and up and their adults.
