Nursery rhymes, fairy tales and fables… for grown-ups!

Part of La Belle Époque, A French Weekend Festival of Chamber Music and Song from France's Golden Age. In collaboration with the University of Sheffield. Celebrated soprano Ailish Tynan partners with pianist Simon Lepper to conclude our French weekend. The carafe jealous of a giraffe, the Queen of Hearts’ strange icy domain, and the adventures of a flea, an elephant and a pot of jam… Poulenc’s delightful, charming, nonsensical and surreal ‘La Courte Paille’ inspires this programme exploring the voice of children in French song.

“Tynan delivers her fresh, bright sound with just the right amount of bloom.” The Guardian
