Hatch! is a contemporary chamber opera for the very young. Three musicians enter into an intensive and creative interplay between voice, percussion and theremin.

A hen lays an egg and is overjoyed that she will soon meet her chicken. But, alas, she does not know how to hatch. She feeds the egg spaghetti, pours water on it, tries to lure it out with sweets … she tries everything, but nothing works. She gets more and more desperate and exhausted. Finally she is convinced she will never meet her chicken. Completely worn out she falls asleep on top of her egg …

In the end of the performance the children are invited to celebrate the happy end together with the performers and with their egg shaker gifts!
