The show ‘Magic Chopin’ arrives at the Teatro Real, a proposal for the whole family that unites animated movies and live music in a very accessible format, within the framework of the special Christmas program of El Real Junior.
The appointment will take place in the Main Hall, with the piano and the music of Frédéric Chopin, next December 27 and 30 and January 3 and 4, at 12 noon, as reported by the Royal Theater.
Thus, under the title of ‘Magic Chopin’ will be presented, for the first time in Spain, this proposal by the Oscar-winning BreakThru Films – whose creation, ‘Pedro y el Lobo’, winner of several awards, could be seen in
the Teatro Real last season – which now invite to an animated film concert that will feature the pianist Mariana Gurkova, performing live the music of the Polish composer, and the participation of Fernando Palacios, as scriptwriter and presenter.
‘Magic Chopin’ presents Chopin’s music with a set of unique animations, composed of a main feature film, ‘Magic Piano’, about 30 minutes long, which tells the adventure of Anna and her cousin Chip-Chip aboard a magic and flying piano, and several animated shorts, ‘The Chopin Shorts’ (‘Chopin’s shorts’), in which four stories of 2 to 3 minutes each are told.
The different narratives surround the viewer that, from the first moment, empathizes with the adventures, emotions and attitudes of the protagonists without ceasing to be surprised until the last moment, taking, when leaving, the memory of an unforgettable experience and many reflections on the moments lived.
