Produced for Chopin’s 200th anniversary, Magic Piano tells the story of 10-year old Anna who misses her father working abroad. Deciding to run away, she stumbles into an old piano, which transforms into a magical flying machine, a cross between a piano, an air-ship, and a giant sailing ship.
Magic Piano is presented in this new live format alongside The Chopin Shorts, a collection of short films, from award-winning animators. With Lim Yan performing the Chopin etudes, this is a wonderful opportunity for children of all ages to experience Chopin’s music within a unique and colourful setting.
The VCH Presents series showcases some of the finest musicians through diverse programmes which transcend boundaries.
