Programme: a musical shadow play after the Lithuanian folk tale “The Cat and the Rooster” set to the musical works by Teisutis Makačinas

We all know what the Lithuanian folk tale “The Cat and the Rooster” is about. It teaches us not to be too credulous, not to succumb to flattery and guile, but to value friendship and, in doing so, to use our imagination and wits. How did the cat manage to free the rooster from the fox’s house? He begins to play the violin and wheedles the fox out! The music thus helps rescue the rooster!
This amusing musical shadow play will be performed by the members of the Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra who will not only habitually play their instruments, but also impersonate various characters and operate puppets. The latter were made by Gintarė Radvilavičiūtė, puppet theatre the director and designer. Music was composed by Teisutis Makačinas.
Episode nineteen in “The Orchestra of Playful Music” series promises a very entertaining and enlightening spectacle. You are most welcome!
