Special NAC Orchestra Family Concert

126 hands joined together in a feast for the eyes and ears

Expect the unexpected when a puppeteer works her shadow theatre magic to the music of the maestro and his 61 musicians in a concert that is a feast for the eyes and ears!

What happens when a skilled illusionist starts messing around with great music? Marcelle Hudon, ingenious puppeteer and mistress of shadow theatre, joins Alexander Shelley and the NAC Orchestra for a visually captivating concert. Puppets and inanimate objects come to life through whimsical light and shadow effects accompanied by Camille Saint-Saëns’ Danse Macabre and Canadian composer Jocelyn Morlock’s Oiseaux bleus et sauvages. Music lovers of all ages should expect the unexpected because magic hands like these can do wonders!
