Classic is Fantastic
The educational project through and for music, aimed at children, continues on Saturday, 30thMarch, and on Sunday, 31stMarch, at 11.00 a.m., with the performance Vivaldi's Childhood.
Classic is Fantastic - Great Musicians' Childhood is a project consisting of five theatre and music performances, intended for children with ages between four and ten.
The story goes that two mice, Sică and Rică, lived in turn in Antonio Vivaldi's violin, Johann Sebastian Bach's organ, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's library, Ludwig van Beethoven's harpsichord, Frederic Chopin's piano…Eager to travel, Sică and Rică sneaked into a suitcase and…arrived in Italy, Venice. Situated in northeastern Italy, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, located on 118 small islands linked through canals and bridges, Venice is practically built on water; its wonderful palazzos are supported by wooden posts and people and cargo are also transported on water. Water, lots of water - this image frightens the two travelling mice. However, their fear vanishes as if by magic when they discover that they are in a house full of music and they get to know the little Antonio Vivaldi, a cute red-headed little boy, a wonderful violinist and a composer filled with ideas, who immediately draws them in his music games, by explaining to them that sounds can speak, tell a story and describe the beauties of the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
