GAUCHE, a young cellist, befriends some storytellers and singers while learning music – including unique animals such as the Band Master, Cat Cuckoo, Little Raccoon and Mother Rat. He then not only learns about music, but also about himself and life in general.
Based on a famous Japanese children’s story by Kenji Miyazawa, Gauche the Cellist is an opera featuring unique songs sung after the original wording of the story.
The operatic drama appeals to both children and adults. It will be performed by the Opera Theatre Konnyakuza of Japan, in collaboration with the Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur, at The Actors Studio Bangsar on July 22 and 23.
