The whole marriage thing… do people really have to tie the knot? Prince Ramiro would much rather keep trying to build the perfect paper dart with his best friend Dandini. Instead, he reluctantly sets off on a quest for a wife. In the process he not only meets a motley bunch of girls eager to land their Prince Charming but also discovers his true nature and the love of his life.

Set to Rossini’s score for his comic opera “La Cenerentola”, this version of Cinderella is a lively and witty tale told through the eyes of the prince. The subliminal message for the kids is that a modern prince marrying Mr Right is just as acceptable as finding a girl to make into a princess.

Press reviews
Nürnberger Nachrichten/Nürnberger Zeitung

„Es ist amüsant mitzuerleben, wie Wiebke Hetmanek auf der Basis von Gioacchino Rossinis Opernknüller „La Cenerentola“ in der von ihr geschriebenen Kinderoper „Der Märchenprinz“ die Perspektive vom Aschenputtel auf den noch eher juvenilen Thronfolger lenkt. (...) Das Geschehen wechselt zwischen Jugendzimmer mit aufblasbaren Sesseln und pink gefärbtem Palast samt mächtigem Königsthron. Regisseurin Annika Nitsch animiert die Darstellerinnen und Darsteller, die allesamt zum Nachwuchs des Internationalen Opernstudios gehören, zu großer Spielfreude und stets menschfreundlich humorvollem Agieren. (...) Mit viel Spielwitz und augenzwinkernd locker geht das Happy End über die Bühne - und es folgt viel Applaus.“

Thomas Heinold, Nürnberger Nachrichten/Nürnberger Zeitung
