King Krax is tired of ruling the land of Abholzhausen. There are too many crises to deal with: Climate change, pandemics, inflation, wars. His cunning chief inventor, Megapfiffikuss, has persuaded the king that he can escape his worries by travelling into space. Lunatick, the king's daughter, is supposed to take care of the problems. However, she has no intention of taking on her father's frustrating tasks and flies off with him into space instead. The destination of their journey is the mysterious Planet 9, which, to everyone's surprise, is already inhabited by the extraterrestrial Ninurians...

Based on Jacques Offenbach's "Journey to the Moon", librettist Paolo Madron and renowned composer Pierangelo Valtinoni have created an equally quirky and fantastical family opera, which director Cordula Däuper has created playful visual worlds from simple means for.
