Britten The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra
Britten’s Young Person’s Guide… shows off all the colours and sounds of a modern orchestra instrument by instrument. This special performance features James Mayhew describing and painting the special characters of flutes, violins, trumpets, drums and more. What a magnificent riot of sound and colour when the whole orchestra plays the final part together and James paints them into one big picture – all projected onto a big screen!
