Verses, rhymes, Grasshopper, Ant: let yourself be transported to the world of fables and poetry. You don’t need to be a poet or a musician to travel with us… Thanks to our conductor and guests, discover how composers were inspired by words and reflected them in music. Both the young and not-so-young will marvel at the beauty of language and symphonic repertoire in this concert that brings music, theatre and poetry together!
