Igor Stravinsky Petrouchka

During this cheerful Family Concert for children age 6 and up, we make the acquaintance of Petrushka: a wooden puppet who seems to be a cross between Punch and Pinocchio, with a Russian twist. The doll comes to life and rebels against the evil magician who keeps him captive. Then he tries to win the affection of a beautiful ballerina but she prefers the dashing Moor, who has a richer life, over poor Petrushka. The events come thick and fast and in the end everything seems to go horribly wrong. The sparkling ballet music of Stravinsky is a joy for young and old.

This concert is for children from the age of six years and older.
