After the creation of Prinses Turandot (2011) / Prinses Turandot (2013) and the French and Dutch versions of Fidelio (2015-2016), this time Judith Vindevogel was inspired by an ancestral Japanese tale that humorously breaks down gender clichés.

Dedicated to Anna Politkovskaïa (1958-2006), Razan al-Najjar (1997-2018), Malala Yousafzai (1997) and all the women of yesterday, today and tomorrow who have the courage and the strength to keep on working for a humane and solidary world, despite all the intimidation and violence.

The story
Eternal Mountain is a famous wrestler, whose greatest assets are bulging muscles and a fat neck. But Malala, Razanna and the old Anna show him that real strength is not only a question of muscles and physical strength.
