Saint-Saëns: The Carnical of the Animals and Paul Patterson–Roald Dahl: Little Red Riding Hood
Music in art, art in music – a family event at the crossroads between our music education programme and City in the House – Veszprém series. In this puppet theatre performance by the Kabóca Puppet Theatre group and the Mendelssohn Chamber Orchestra, objects enjoy their own 'carnival' to the music of Saint-Saëns. Hens, roosters, occasional water animals, wild horses, and snails appear on stage, while a silly lion and a rabbit try to find their way among a world of objects, gloves, scarves and socks that also then become animals. Unique even in Roald Dahl's eerily haunting world, the story of Little Red Riding Hood (and the Wolf) is told for adults and children alike, as seen through his eyes, accompanied by Paul Patterson's stunningly inventive music, the orchestra musicians' stylized 'theatrical' performance, and audience participation...
The language of this family event is Hungarian.
Music has its good friends too. And as friends so often do, they often get together to create wonderful things. In this series, we aim to show how circus, drawing, theatre, poetry and dance are linked to music and vice versa, and how music can help these arts. And following the special performances, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself not only in music, but also in some amazing art forms. We welcome everyone who loves to create and would like to become best friends forever with the arts!
