Putting his trust in the weird, wild man, a child overcomes his fears and worries and, at the end of the day, emerges as the happy winner and gets the king's daughter. Following the great success of Wolfgang Mitterer's "Brave little tailor" (Das tapfere Schneiderlein, col legno WWW 20801) – "You couldn't wish for a better theater experience for children" (Opernwelt) – the second children's opera production staged by the Wiener Taschenoper is now also available on CD: Eisenhans! – "Iron John!" The Berlin composer Ali N. Askin delights in merging all sorts of different sounds into an amazing listening experience. So let us accompany the king's son as he plunges into the fantastic world of Iron John, where gold is real gold just as iron is real iron, where boys grow into real men, and where love is worthless unless it be faithful, too.

Sferraina create an enchanting sound space, where music from past eras continually overlaps and interacts with the present. Highly recommended!
[...] contains pop music of stunning grandeur, and of moving simplicity. Sincerely recommended!
What a cheek! So Wolfgang Mitterer can do that, too: and writing a children’s opera really is no picnic, with or without jam. (Or flies.)
