Breath of life – man and beast

A miniature menagerie: butterflies, a bird-man, two cats and one mouse, a majestic swan, and John Tavener and William Blake’s famous little lamb, all dancing to a Magic Flute.

Music as nimble or as languid, as feather-light or as brilliantly-coloured as the animal kingdom itself.
