About the Programme

Inspired by the classic Grimm's Fairy Tales Town Musicians of Bremen and combined with classical music along with Cantonese lyrics, it is a vivid 'modern musical' tailor-made for children.

Town Musicians tells the story of four little animals which dreamed to be great musicians.  However, they all got their unique character for being arrogant, greedy, impulsive and stubborn respectively.  They did not get along well, but they had to rely on each other on their journey.  Along the way, they formed a band named 'Town Musicians'.  They performed in the street and always made mistakes with lots of funny moments.  Later on, they even encountered a robber...Would they achieve their dreams and become great musicians at the end?

 

With post-performance talk after each performance (Conducted in Cantonese)

 

Programme Length

The programme lasts for about 70 minutes without intermission
