Name, first nameLeonie FlöttmannYear of birth1986eMailleonie_merle@web.deUniversityHSLUField of Interest / research fieldIllustration / Visual NarrationTitle of projectOpera as a Children’s bookAbstractTraditdional culture gets lost with each generation. At the same time, however, changes in society lead to the creation of new cultural sectors. Quite often parents fail to introduce their children to cultural traditions such as theater, opera and ballet.
It is especially the youth that has lost access to these matters of culture. It seems, many of the young people are bored by traditional culture, they seem to find it conventional and old-fashioned.
The intention of my project is, to counteract against the neglect of culture, namely the neglect of opera.
The basis of this project will be a theoretical analysis of facts concerning cultural neglect, which proceeds the development of a book, in which I will illustrate an unconventional opera for both, children an adults. Thus I hope to arouse young peoples curiosity and to help them finding access to the opera.TutorsPaolo Friz
