La Companyia del Príncep Totilau (Spain) presents Monsieur Croche: The Dreams of Composer Claude Debussy

  • Hong Kong City Hall - Theatre 5 Edinburgh Place Central, Hong Kong Island Hong Kong (map)

A wonderfully immersive introduction to the artistic imagination for all ages!

Monsieur Croche is dreaming during an afternoon nap. As his pillow slowly rises, he and his wife float towards a mesmerising enchanted island. Accompanied by the playful, blue-haired, horned fairy, they meet magical, giant-eyed elves, a huge insect that swallows musical notes, and have a tussle with a mermaid amid the tossing sea, as their inspirational journey draws them into the joyous world of creativity. 

French 19th-century composer Claude Debussy is renowned for his atmospheric "impressionist" works. Here, Spain's La Companyia del Príncep Totilau blends a live piano performance of Debussy pieces, including favourites Clair de Luneand Deux Arabesques No.1, with human actors and appealing puppets, large-scale video images, intriguing lighting, and rippling movement and dance to conjure up a mysterious yet exhilarating realm of discovery. An uplifting opportunity to "see" with your ears and "hear" with your eyes.
