Christmas Celebration: Nutcracker & Hansel

Christmas Celebration: Nutcracker &

Settle down and enjoy Christmas fun and fantasy for all the family with these two magical classics from the Royal Opera House. All-time ballet favourite The Nutcracker comes to life in this stunning and captivating production – a real delight for adults and children alike. This is coupled with a spectacular and unforgettable performance of Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel. Imaginatively staged and with a new and original interpretation, this classic fairy tale provides the ideal seasonal treat. WorksTchaikovsky: The Nutcracker Humperdinck: Hansel und GretelPress Reviews"...the Royal Ballet's Nutcracker is a handsome, magical, thoroughly traditional rendering..." (The Sunday Express - The Nutcracker) "The dancing of the two young principals, Iohna Loots and Ricardo Cervera as Clara and her enchanted Nutcracker, is characterful and enchanting...this is a generally conventional production [of Nutcracker] which sets off the dancers well...Kirchschlager is a very believable shock-haired boy, and brings Hansel's boredom and mischief to life with great panache...The delicious profile of the music as delivered is picked up by the orchestra under a most responsive conductor. " (Musicweb International - The Nutcracker) "Angelika Kirchschlager's tousled, boyish Hänsel and Diana Damrau's Gretel are dramatically convincing and vocally superb, while their parents, excellently sung and played by Elizabeth Connell and Thomas Allen, earn our sympathy as well as our censure. Pumeza Matshikiza's goblin-like Sandman is truly magical and Anita Watson's feather-dusting Dew Fairy another amusing creation. Colin Davis, unafraid to relish the icing on the cake, draws a warm, effulgent sound from the orchestra." (Evening Standard - Hansel & Gretel) "Not only was the production a great one to attend as [read more]

Italian Kids Songs and Rhymes

Italian Kids Songs and

Italian Kids Songs & Rhymes: A Mama Lisa BookItaly! A land with a rich tradition of children's songs and rhymes!In this book we've gathered over eighty Italian songs and rhymes, presented in their original language and with translations into English. Many have commentary sent to us by our correspondents around the world. It's an ideal resource for teachers of the Italian language, parents who want to share memories with their children, and anyone who loves the Italian culture.You'll find nursery rhymes like "Batta le Manine" (Clap Your Hands), songs like "La bella lavanderina" (The Pretty Washerwoman) and Christmas carols like the beloved "Tu scendi dalle stelle" (You Come Down from the Stars). Italy has been at the center of Western civilization for thousands of years, and we've included representatives from that entire time span. So you'll even find a few songs in Latin, the language of the Roman Empire and the Church, like "Personent hodie" (This Day Resounds), a carol from the 1500's.We're also very pleased to include several songs in different Italian dialects. Italy has had varied linguistic influences over the ages and this has led to many different variants of the language still being spoken there. Many have also been preserved in immigrant communities, particularly in the US, though these are fading as the children and grandchildren of immigrants often speak only English. Yet those same people have treasured memories of the rhymes and songs their grandparents sang to them. There's not always a sharp distinction between songs sung by children and by adults. So we've included a sampling of popular traditional songs like "Santa Lucia"."Italian Kids Songs and Rhymes" is produced by Mama Lisa's World, where we work with ordinary people around the globe to build a platform to [read more]
