Charlotte is no ordinary little girl; she plays the trumpet on a cardboard tube, the xylophone with two knitting needles, and the drums on anything that bangs. Her musical talents are not appreciated at home, so she sets off into the wide world only to find herself lost in a raging blizzard. The Music-Maker to the rescue! An odd little man who shares Charlotte's passion for music, the Music-Maker takes Charlotte on a magical, musical journey. Your ESO will perform a stunning original score by Canadian composer Alain Trudel, plus selections from Handel, Grieg, and up-beat arrangements of well-known popular tunes. Families will enjoy this adventure with Platypus Theatre exploring the sounds and colours of the instruments and the exciting possibilities that music offers. Recommended for ages 4 and up.
This concert does not include an intermission.
