Concert performance for children The Wonderful Pearl
The musical concert performance The Wonderful Pearl was inspired by Spanish folk tales and the music of Spanish composers. This tale in music will be full of exciting turns and colorful characters: the Spanish beauty Ursuletta, the Evil Wizard, Prince Alvaro, the Old Horse, Bird, Bear, and others. Most importantly, the tale will show beautiful and passionate Spanish music composed by Sebastián Durón, Gaspar Sanz, Alonso Mudarra, Juan del Encina.
