THE SHORT STRAW
Nursery rhymes, fairy tales and fables… for grown-ups!
Celebrated soprano Ailish Tynan partners with pianist Simon Lepper to conclude our French weekend. The carafe jealous of a giraffe, the Queen of Hearts’ strange icy domain, and the adventures of a flea, an elephant and a pot of jam… Poulenc’s delightful, charming, nonsensical and surreal ‘La Courte Paille’ inspires this programme exploring the voice of children in French song.
