SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2013 at 12:30 pm | PINOCCHIO

Pinocchio

What do you get when you cross a string quartet, a hammer, some sandpaper, a musical saw, puppets and video footage of original paintings and shadow images? You get PINOCCHIO!, composer Kate Sullivan’s tour de force new musical setting of an old Italian tale.

Kirby Horton Hall will be transformed into a magical story-telling theater. Actor Paul Paliyenko will read the narration, a bi-lingual tip of the cap to author Carlo Collodi. He will begin, “C’era una volta, once upon a time….there was…a piece of wood, un pezzo di legno che piangeva e rideva comme un bambino…yes, it laughed and cried like a baby…” and off they will go with the quartet playing eleven short movements, from “The Workshop” to “La Notatta Orribile” (The Terrible Swim) to “Pesce Cane” (The Dog-Fish). The musicians will use their instruments to add the meows of cats, the groans of whales, the eerie harmonics of monsters.

Tickets: $5 for children (12 and under); $10 for adults
