Ever heard a glass orchestra? An incredible band invites you to run away to the unforgettable town of Quinnipak. There you’ll meet the glass-maker dreaming of crystal palaces, the musician searching for notes only he can hear and the orphan trying not to grow into his coat- shaped destiny. This theatrical adaptation brings best- selling Italian novelist Alessandro Baricco’s wonderful, hilarious world of imagination to UK audiences for the first time. Features live music played on specially created glass instruments: marimbas, chimes, bells, even a Sauvignon-blancophone.
