The Story of the Little Tailor

Starting from Tibor Harsányi’s score – Hungarian composer and pianist that in 1950 wrote the musical adaptation of the Brothers Grimm tale – the Granollers Chamber Orchestra interprets the score and Pepa Plana tells the story in a free adaptation. Through an ingenuous, daring, tender and unashamed gaze, the endearing clown uses her chameleonic talents to make us relive the tale as if we heard it for the first time. The musical score, which is interpreted by 8 instrumentalists of the Granollers Chamber Orchestra conducted by Francesc Guillén, accompanies and wraps up Pepa Plana’s words and gestures. The stage direction is by Pep Bou.

This is the first time that Pepa Plana participates in a production that it is not mainly aimed for adult audiences. It premiered at the Teatre Auditori of Granollers followed by an extensive tour throughout Catalonia during the 2006/2007 and 2007/2008 seasons.
