Description

From LANDS ACROSS the SEVEN SEAS: Fairy Tales (2 sections of 50 minutes each with a 15-minute break)

Surreal fairy tales from the Asian sub-continent and Scottish stories of mid-winter. This festive season fly and frolic with fairies of a different kind, fairy cats and dogs, adventures of princesses and an Asian version of the Sleeping Beauty story. Create your own masks and drawings and learn a few songs to sing over the Christmas holidays!
