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 homoludicus 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 LĂ©opold, a strange character from who knows where.

And suddenly things get tricky … clowning and dance together gatecrash classical music !

“Classical music and movement, you’re never too young for that. Especially when ClariCello and Leopold play at the Philharmonie. The three elves take children as young as two into a magical musical world where instruments and props come to life and young explorers are playfully introduced to Bach, Gallano and Mozart.”
