“This show is alive, fascinating and builds the imagination to all who see it” - Doce Notas, Spain

A dreamy retelling of the Brothers Grimm’s timeless classics

A little fairy leads the way into an enchanted forest where Sleeping Beauty, the Frog Prince, Tom Thumb, the Wicked Queen, and other famous characters from Grimm’s Fairy Tales await. However, in this unspoken, music-rich reinterpretation of the familiar stories, the world view appears a little different. Here, a dwarf eats Snow White’s poisoned apple, and Little Red Riding Hood makes friends with the Big Bad Wolf!

With Ravel’s evocative Mother Goose Suite, specifically written for children, at its heart and dextrous use of puppets, projections, and ingenious props, La Maquiné melds harmony, humour and eye-catching images into a tapestry of emotive scenes and magical happenings. A poetic and inspiring journey into a universe beyond words.

Audience Tip: Learn about the original stories before the show for an even more meaningful theatrical experience!
