For those beginning their musical journey.
“This is your one chance. You have your secret dreams. Follow them! Make them come true…”
Best-selling children's book The Peasant Prince comes to life with music by Katy Abbott, storytelling and big-screen projections. Li Cunxin's inspirational tale - based on his autobiography, Mao's Last Dancer - traces the journey of a young boy from rural China who, against all odds, becomes one of the most famous dancers in the world. The story unfolds with disarming simplicity and charm, with humour and compassion.
This concert provides an opportunity for students to celebrate the social, cultural, political, and economic links that connect Australia with Asia.
