Musical fantasia for a quirky trio

Claricello is a musical box, a poetic piece of machinery, tenderly and mischievously played by three imps with their suitcase-cubes. Their lanterns lit up, these three breezy elves invite us to visit their puppet booth. Three genius musicians, dancers, poets, who without seeming to, charm and disarm us as they play with their instrument-partners…
Three homo-ludicus dancing to the tick-tock of the singing clock… popping up unexpectedly on the days the stars wink and the moon does a back flip. Like animals shedding their old skins, the musical instruments come alive and take their place in the hands of the characters for this nonsensical, topsy-turvy tale.
Clari, a clarinet with plenty of puff and a lot of cheek, a head full of air and tunes.
Cello, a big fat violin, rubbed the right way with the magic wand that is its bow.
And Léopold, a strange character from who knows where.
