ThoroughBass: The Toybox
14 September @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm AEST
Too good not to reprise, The Toybox returns in September. Claude Debussy’s little-known children’s ballet La Boîte à joujoux (The Toybox) is transformed from ballet back to story-form by Inara Molinari, accompanied by a small ensemble and various noisy toys (Thoroughbass). An illustrated miniature masterpiece full of microscopic detail, it entrances young and old alike.
Performers include Lucy Cormack (narrator), Angus Ryan (cello), Tara Hashambuoy (violin), Steve Machamer (percussion), Diana Weston (piano, harpsichord).
