Holland has discovered Russian Fairy Tales. The Singer Museum planned to stage an exhibition about the subject in 2003. The Groninger Museum realised the plan in 2008. Today the Nederlandse Opera is staging one Russian Fairy Tale opera after the other. Russian tales are hot!
One recent performance of the Nederlandse Opera was particularly remarkable. This time a Danish Tale 'The Nightingale' from Hans Christian Andersen figured on the 'menu', set on music by Strawinsky.
