Inspired by the rich musical imagery of composer Maurice Ravel, we enter the world of Mother Goose as she tells the enchanting stories of her childhood. As she blends her personal history with familiar fairy tales, magic takes hold and she is transformed into each romantic heroine, experiencing youth, lost love, and new possibilities. With the prick of a finger Sleeping Beauty falls into a hundred year sleep. Beauty meets the Beast for the first time. Tom Thumb drops breadcrumbs through the forest seeking his way home. The Princess of the Pagodas defeats the evil sorcerer and saves the Serpent Prince. These stories ultimately lead Mother Goose through a journey of self-discovery, peace, and redemption. Set to the score of Ravel’s “Ma Mère L’Oye,” the piece is performed onstage in front of the orchestra with the company’s signature blend of puppetry, masked actors, magic, dance and pantomime.
Recommended for ages 5 and up.
Running time is approximately 60 minutes.
[Enchantment] beautifully combine[s] theatrical elements with live symphony orchestras. This collaborative melding of the arts for the benefit of younger audience members and their accompanying adults is a valuable asset to us all.
