Water, Music, Whales and Words come together in this stunning family friendly performance by the incredible musicians of Sinfonia Cymru with Storyteller Catherine Dyson.
“Lena lives in the future, in a world where both water and music are a fading memory. When she finds an old record cover with a picture of a whale in her grandparents’ attic, she sets out on a journey, determined to find this magnificent creature and the water it swims in, and to hear its song once more”.
What does water mean to you? Life. Fun. Danger. Power. In this exciting performance programmed by musician Daniel Shao with an original story written and narrated by Catherine Dyson, we explore our fascinating relationship with water. With a powerful ecological message at its source, this new production will mesmerize and inspire children and adults alike to treat water like our best friend.
Please note that there will be an interactive water percussion display to explore and enjoy before and after the performance.
Suitable for all ages. Free as part of Big Splash.
