In these programmes for small children, fairy tales come to life in concert with and through music.
French composer Maurice Ravel frequently spoke to his friend's children, Jean and little Mimie, of an old collection of stories, which included fairy tales like Sleeping Beauty and Tom Thumb. He composed for them piano pieces written for four hands to accompany the stories, and later wrote the ballet music that depicts Sleeping Beauty's dream, Tom Thumb's sorrowful wandering, the enco...unter of the Little Ugly Girl - a princess disfigured by enchantment - with the inhabitants and pagodas of the fairy-tale world, the dialogue between Beauty and the Beast, and the Fairy Garden emanating happiness and peace. These well-known tales will now be brought to life with both Ravel's magical music and the shadow puppetry created for them.
