A very special multimedia family event! Children and adults alike will be entranced and even amazed by the animated films of Lotte Reiniger, made in the 1930s and ‘4os but gaining new admirers after a retrospective this year. We weave them together with a live soundtrack, created ‘on the spot’ using elements of Schumann’s Fairytale pictures – alongside ‘straight’ performances of Schumann and Prokofiev’s lovable waltzes.
