Pippi Longstocking

Ülo Vinter’s and Ülo Raudmäe’s musical, based on the eponymous children’s novel by Astrid Lindgren
Dramatisation: Andres Dvinjaninov (Emajõe Summer Theatre)
Lyrics: Enn Vetemaa and Neeme Kuningas
Premiere at the Estonian National Opera on March 5, 2011

The most popular children’s musical in Estonia!

Is there anybody else who is as peculiar, cool and remarkable as Pippi? Probably not, because Pippi is Pippi – a girl with mismatched stockings, fiery red braids and freckles, who has superhuman strength, being able to lift her horse one-handed. What is most important – you will never get bored with her! Andres Dvinjaninov, the stage director, will bring to the audience the jolly characters from Astrid Lindgren’s beloved children’s book, together with whom it is possible to discover not only Spunk but much more …perhaps a little bit of Pippi inside ourselves?
