The Pied Piper of Hamelin
« on: July 02, 2013, 04:48:37 PM »
The Pied Piper of Hamelin (German: Rattenfänger von Hameln) is the subject of a legend concerning the departure or death of a great number of children from the town of Hamelin (Hameln), Lower Saxony, Germany, in the Middle Ages. The earliest references describe a piper, dressed in multicolored clothing, leading the children away from the town never to return. In the 16th century the story was expanded into a full narrative, in which the piper is a rat-catcher hired by the town to lure rats away with his magic pipe. When the citizenry refuses to pay for this service, he retaliates by turning his magic on their children, leading them away as he had the rats. This version of the story spread as a fairy tale. This version has also appeared in the writings of, amongst others, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the Brothers Grimm and Robert Browning.

The story may reflect a historical event in which Hamelin lost its children. Theories have been proposed suggesting that the Pied Piper is a symbol of the children's death by plague or catastrophe. Other theories liken him to figures like Nicholas of Cologne, who is said to have lured away a great number of children on a disastrous Children's Crusade. A recent theory ties the departure of Hamelin's children to the Ostsiedlung, in which a number of Germans left their homes to colonize Eastern Europe. --Wiki

lucky to have watched this in the late 1990s:

998-freilichtspiel - The Pied Piper of Hamelin  - Lifestyle, Culture and Arts

most grown-ups in and around hameln have joined the open-air play as rats when they were children.  our host was one of them.

from what i saw, there wasn't much acting.  the children in rat costumes simply get down on all fours briefly, and then stand up and walk in line following the pied piper on his route from the town square to the river. 

it's cute, i thought.  the children were simply playing and enjoying the experience.  that time, there were two standouts from among the "rats", an asian and an african.  it's the costumes that added magic to the festive air.  well, even our snacks of bread (or cookies, i'm not sure now) were shaped like rats.
