Opus Prize 1997 – Best Production for Young Audience, Conseil québécois de la musique
Violin on a String introduces audiences to the lively and bubbly Madame Violon, who is head over heels for one particular four-stringed instrument. Using a slide projector, she shares her extensive knowledge in a humorous and whimsical way. The entire production unfolds under the friendly eye of her trusty piano accompanist, Herr Allan von Sutton, as they play their favourite works of music.
Where do violins come from? Who makes them? Who repairs them? What is their history? Madame Violon will reveal all and much more. She also takes great pleasure in answering questions from young audiences
A STUDY GUIDE is available for teachers interested in preparing children for the performance.
