Königskinder trailer with Christof Loy | Dutch National Opera

In this fairy tale, the role of villain is not played by a witch or dragon, but by humanity. Engelbert Humperdinck’s Königskinder is a tragic story about a goose girl and a prince who fall in love. Together, they overcome magical obstacles and their own prejudices, but are misunderstood and rejected by the harsh society they live in.
