Award-winning poet Sophia Thakur narrates her own script and composer Sally Herbert conducts this world premiere performance by the English Chamber Orchestra of an epic film-like score that brings a spectacular story to life.

Set in a fictional world, Oswald Ourania is the puppet master of the City Theatre – a place where puppets dazzle audiences with amazing stories. Oswald breathes life into the theatre’s puppet animals by conjuring up musical songs and tunes on his Gazillium Music Machine. When Oswald gets sick, things start to go wrong. The puppet animals escape and a young girl, Isabelle, must use the power of music to charm the community of puppet animals back to the theatre.

Alongside Copland’s timeless classic the Appalachian Spring Suite, performed by the Orchestra and a student-inspired composition set to film called Amelia and the Robot, this is a must-see performance for story lovers everywhere.

Please note start time.

Duration: approx. 1 hour 35 minutes (incl. interval)
