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 is his destiny.
This music theatre 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.
Performers: Tom Bancroft, Hannah Boyde, Brendan Murphy, Beccy Owen, Tom Walton
Based on the novel by Alessandro Baricco
Director: Annie Rigby
Designer: Andrew Stephenson
Dramaturg: Rosie Kellagher
