Who wouldn’t be surprised if they cut open a peach, only to be greeted by a lively, cheerful little boy? This happened to a couple in a Japanese fairy-tale. The peach boy Momotaro is an adventurous little fellow, and together with three friends, he sets out to vanquish the evil demons on the mysterious island of Onigashima. «Momotaro, der Pfirsichjunge» is a story which seems predestined to be set to music and transformed into impressive stage action. Not least, it shows that keeping faith in life, despite its vagaries, is ultimately rewarded.
