Bertil is a lonely lad – until he meets Tom Thumb, who goes under the name of Nils Karlsson in this production. Nils lives in a mouse hole, and shares a secret with Bertil… An imaginative children's opera after Astrid Lindgren.

»Twinkle Concerts« is the series of children’s concerts at the Elbphilharmonie that brings the most successful productions from all over Europe to Hamburg. At times funny and playful, at others thoughtful and reflective, the series introduces children to the world of music in a special and unique way. In addition, the popular Elfi Baby Concerts for expectant mothers and parents with babies up to one year of age continue to take place at the Elbphilharmonie and in many Hamburg districts.
