»That old sorcerer has vanished
And for once has gone away!
Spirits called by him, now banished,
My commands shall soon obey.«

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s »The Sorcerer’s Apprentice« will appear on stage in a very special performance including the whole orchestra! When the sorcerer’s apprentice is supposed to do the tasks set for him by his master, chaos ensues because he does not yet have full command of his magical powers. Water floods the room and his agitation rises ...

Together with Philharmonisches Orchester Heidelberg and the magical music of Paul Dukas and John Williams, the apprentice tries to regain control of the chaos before his master returns.
