Pepper the Monkey

Pepper the Monkey

Pepper the Monkey and the Extraordinary Rainbow Circus

Join Pepper the mischievous monkey on a dare-devil musical journey to join the extraordinary Rainbow Circus. Enter the Green Leaf Forest, and meet troublesome froglets, a growling lion cub and an especially slippery snake in need of some concerted charming.

Blending brand-new chamber arrangements of Schumann’s enchanting music with a specially-commissioned story from writer Kate Wakeling and a host of playful opportunities to take part in the music, this interactive family concert promises to be multi-sensory adventure for all the family.

Featuring music from Schumann’s Albumblätter, Carnival, and Album for the Young in chamber arrangements by Iain Farrington.
