enter the magical worlds created by music's greatest composers...
Mash Production's Musical Myths series brings together great compositions and captivating stories so as to appeal to children of all ages. Fairy tales have been retold, and the texts are interwoven with the musical scores in such a way that the narrator has a central role in the performance, thus adding a new depth and atmosphere to the words as they are spoken.
Some of music's greatest works have been inspired by the fairy tales that so enchanted us through childhood. The first pieces to be featured in our Musical Myths series are The Firebird by Stravinsky, The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky, and Cinderella by Prokofiev. This new arrangement promises to bring them to life like never before.
Musical Myths is available for live performances with either full orchestra or piano solo. Introduced and narrated by Chris Jarvis, one of CBeebies' flagship presenters, shows will last approximately one hour. A specially commissioned set of illustrations by Emily Woodard are available for projection during concerts, and there is also the option of activity packs for young children.
