After Geoffroy de Pennart’s book Sophie la vache musicienne

She is Sophie; she is a cow who lives in a village; she has a family; she has a good friend at her side, always ready to lend a helping paw! She is much like us because she has… a DREAM!
 
But things do not go as smoothly in our lives as we might expect…
 
The musical performance “Sophie the Musical Cow” for the whole family after Geoffroy de Pennart’s funny and inspiring book tells a story about a cow who is mad about music. She loves entertaining her family and friends by singing and playing the piano. But her biggest dream is to sing with an orchestra.
 
How did she succeed in finding an orchestra willing to accompany her? What adventures and trials did await her in the big city? What Sophie’s weight, height, horns, noisy hoofs, or the lack of elegance had to do with the music? What song did she sing with the band of “Music Friends” she has formed?
 
This performance was set to the music composed by Zita Bružaitė. The new production is directed by Laima Akstinaitė who will also appear in the leading role of Sophie the Cow. The accompanying Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra is conducted by Egidijus Miknius.
 
We invite the little ones, together with their family members, to meet Sophie the Musical Cow and try to make music together with her band!
