About Toscana Strings: Monkey Puzzle & The Wind in the Willows

Former soloist with Birmingham Royal Ballet Laura Tye and award-winning string quintet Toscana Strings perform two family favourite stories; Monkey Puzzle and Wind in the Willows.

In the first half of this concert a little monkey is trying to find his mum with the help of a butterfly. This beautiful story by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler is told through music and dance with a little help from the audience. Each animal the monkey and butterfly meet is represented by a different dance style.

After the interval discover if good friends Mole, Ratty and Badger help Mr Toad after one adventure too far? Adapted from Kenneth Grahame’s children’s novel and music by Edward Elgar, this performance combines the perfect mix of enchantment and humour with the opportunity for audience participation to captivate young imaginations.
