The Adventures of Maestro Puss in Boots

PRESENTATION OF THE CONCERT

How does a dusty old farm cat turn a poor miller into the Marquis de Carabas? The answer lies in the boots! Boots of Italian leather, naturally. You have to know how to market yourself if you want to get ahead – something our Puss in Boots knows only too well. The instinct for survival, the choice of words, the power of charm, all of it heightened by the spellbinding and sublime music of a symphony orchestra…plus a few fascinating fibs: these are the tricks that our hilarious Puss in Boots will use to hoist his master to the highest levels of society. And with a singing Ogre, a dancing King and a poet Princess – all the ingredients are there to delight your senses!

 

Follow along to the sounds of works by Mendelssohn, Stravinsky, Mussorgsky, Bartók, Prokofiev and Poulenc, among others.

THE CARNAVAL OF THE ANIMALS AT THE ORGAN

PRESENTATION OF THE CONCERT

Were you aware that the Grand Orgue Pierre-Béique weighs as much as six elephants and that its longest pipe measures eleven meters? From J.S. Bach’s Toccata to Saint-Saëns’s Carnival of the Animals by way of a Tango by Pierre Cholley, a perfect opportunity for both younger and older spectators to have a good time discovering this fascinating instrument. Jean-Willy on the organ, Mathieu at the mic and Mika doing the illustrations will be your guides for a surprise-filled exploration.
