Lands of Glass

By Unfolding Theatre

Ever heard a glass orchestra? An incredible band invites you to run away to the unforgettable town of Quinnipak.

There you’ll meet the glassmaker dreaming of a crystal palace, the musician searching for notes only he can hear, and the orphan trying not to grow into the coat that is his destiny.

This adaptation blends music and theatre to bring best-selling Italian novelist Alessandro Baricco’s wonderful, hilarious world of imagination to UK audiences for the first time. Featuring live music played on specially created glass instruments: marimbas, chimes, bells, even a Sauvignon-blancophone.
