Opus Orchestra | Storytime (Rotorua)



Jenny McLeod - The Emperor and the Nightingale

Poulenc - The Story of Babar (L’Histoire de Babar)

The renowned actor and comedian Mark Hadlow joins Opus Orchestra to tell two time-honoured stories that the whole family will enjoy. The fairy tale The Emperor and the Nightingale has been given a delightful musical setting by New Zealand composer, Jenny McLeod. Then we have Jean de Brunhoff’s classic The Story of Barbar, the little Elephant. Francis Poulenc’s setting is charming, witty and engaging, like the story itself. A. A. Milne (the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh) wrote “If you love elephants you will love Babar and Celeste. If you have never loved elephants you will love them now.” Children, parents, grandparents: let us transport you to the fairytale kingdoms of the Emperor and the little Elephant.
