Lands of Glass
Ever heard a glass orchestra? An incredible band invites you to run away to the unforgettable town of Quinnipak.
There you’ll meet the glassmaker, dreaming of a crystal palace, the musician searching for notes only he can hear, and the orphan trying not to grow into the coat that’s his destiny.
This theatrical adaptation brings best-selling Italian novelist Alessandro Baricco’s wonderful, hilarious world of imagination to UK audiences for the first time, featuring live music played on specially created glass instruments: marimbas, chimes, bells, even a Sauvignon-blancophone.
