I was so excited when I read about this, I nearly fell off my chair ! Yes, it’s really happening, I haven’t just dreamt about it: Switzerland’s most famous & beloved fictional character will tread the boards at the Théâtre Töpffer in Geneva from the 4th of November to the 2nd of December 2012.
I cannot wait to take my little muffins to see the show, which follows quite closely the original plot of Johanna Spyri’s novel, from Heidi’s arrival at her grandfather’s home to her move to Frankfurt and friendship with little Clara, who is wheelchair-bound. Heidi is determined to go back to her beloved mountains and carefree life, but she also believes her best friend Clara should follow her: after all, what could be a better cure than the fresh air of her mountain pastures ?
The show is recommended for children aged 3 and up. Tickets cost 15 CHF for children up to the age of 12 and 30 CHF for adults. Shows take place on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 3.30pm (the duration of the show is 1 hour and a half) – here’s the next available dates:
