Mozart Recycled
A socio-cultural youth opera, initiated by the Argentinian-Swiss puppeteer Frida Leon, puts a spotlight on a group of „cartoneros“. Facundo and Cristina, who live in the slums of Buenos Aires and work as urban recyclers, participate in the project. For the first time they perform on stage of a big opera house and even get the chance to travel to Switzerland, one of the richest countries in the world. As both have never traveled abroad, this journey becomes a stirring experience.
