“Christofer Elgh’s newly written music is both playful and powerful and it gives a lot of space”
“The performance highlights the bizarre and humorous sides of Alice in Wonderland, not least through the fantastic costumes and scenography”
“Likewise, the performance highlights the philosophical sides of Lewis Carolls Reality is turned upside down, upside down, magnified and diminished – nothing is ever as you think. We hear bells ticking and going without anyone really catching up “,
” All artistic expressions complement each other and contribute to a unity – a work of art – and an experience beyond the ordinary “.
Between 18th and 19th September, visitors will be able to visit the Taberg mine, which these days is full of art, light, painting, sculptures and music. This year there will be a world premiere by Minopera of the musical-dramatic performance “Alice in Wonderland – the teaparty”

Wave Dash Camilla Hoitenga, flute, Magdalena Meiztner, percussion commissioned works from Anne Le Baron, Lisa Streich and Christofer Elgh. All three composers are asked to use their creativity not only for sound but even for the visual aspect of the performance by involving movement, sound installations, self built instrument and more. The composers will include literature in different ways: Christofer Elgh rewrites the poem “Neeijjj” by the swedish writer Sonja Åkesson in his own musical language. Lisa Streich is referring to Peter Handkes idea about duration (“Dauer”). Anne LeBaron composes a contemporary version of japanese Noh-theater, an old samurai tradition that tells different stories about archetypes like the hero, the ghost or the divine play.
