The Best Cake in the World

Opera by Per Larsson and Linda Mallik.

A fun, exciting adventure with song, music and dance – recommended for children between 4 and 6 years old. Performed in Swedish.

”A wonderful family show”Nya Lidköpings Tidningen
The Child and Clothdog have played all the games that dogs and children can play together. They've played ball, drawn, played music and built things. What are they going to do now? Mamma is just sitting at the table working. Then the Child gets an idea: ”We can make her a cake! Mix and knead and sift and stir, lots of things all in a whirr!” It will be the best cake in the world. In it is everything that children and mothers and dogs like. But Mamma's eyes are too tired. She only sees the messy kitchen. The Child and Clothdog have had enough. ”We're moving to Norrland and are never coming back!”

This newly composed opera for children is a delicate and comic story with big emotions and a happy ending.
