Was ist los bei den Enakos?

Music Elisabeth Naske | Ela Baumann

Agrana Studiobühne | Walfischgasse


The same thoughts, the same happiness, the same feelings: that’s how easy it is to govern a people! But of course such equality is nothing less than limitation, dictatorship and oppression, as the people of Enakos discover in Elisabeth Naske’s new children’s opera. However, individuality suddenly flourishes in the state if uniformity once the people of Enakos realize that equality does not always achieve one’s objectives, and that proscribed equality has nothing to do with freedom. In the end, everyone discovers their personal uniqueness before uniting in the final chorus: “It really doesn’t matter whether we are yellow or blue, beautiful or smart, big or small. We must all be satisfied.”
