The Hans Hermann Voss-Stiftung funds the production of the new opera for children “Pin Kaiser and Fip Husar” by Cologne Children’s Opera for the season 2018/2019. The play is based on the children’s book written by Dieter Wiesmüller.
An Antarctic penguin meets an ape from the African savannah, and they start an uncommon friendship. The play focusses on topics such as diversity, alienness, clash of different cultures and ways of communication .
The opera is produced for children three years and older.
In 2016 the Hans Hermann Voss-Stiftung supported the Friends of the Children's Opera by financing a new minibus, enabling the Cologne Children’s Opera to perform the production “Irgendwie anders” (“Somehow different”) also in Wipperfürth in 2017 and 2018. All preschool children in town visited the play.
