Ferdinand the bull
Alan Ridout's Ferdinand is a musical retelling of Munro Leaf's enchanting picture book The Story of Ferdinand, which has been loved by generations of children. Ridout's version is set for solo violin and narrator, and features Leaf's original words.
Ferdinand is not like the other little bulls in his pasture; he does not like to fight, or butt heads. Instead he prefers to sit just quietly, and smell the flowers...
This performance also features traditional Spanish and Chilean folk songs, performed by Hernan Flores (guitar, vocals) and Tara Hashambhoy (violin).
This is our debut children's concert. The Pearl and Dagger Company perform works that blend musical performance with theatrical elements. In this performance, you will meet many characters, including the gentle, dreamy Ferdinand, his worrisome mother, the proud matador, and one tiny insect.
This performance is available for primary schools and early learning centres. Please email us or call for more information.
