Lonely, aging puppet-maker Geppetto (Academy Award-winner Martin Landau - "Ed Wood," "Crimes and Misdemeanors") carves a young boy from a tree which he once carved his love's initials near his village. When the puppet Pinocchio magically springs to life, Geppetto is thrilled to have a companion. However, their time together is unfortunately cut short when wicked showman Lorenzini steals Pinocchio away. Separated from his father, Pinocchio embarks on a wild series of misadventures that make him want to become a real boy (played by Jonathan Taylor Thomas - "Wild America," TV's "Home Improvement").
Opera's North enchanting staging of The Adventures of Pinocchio, Johnathan Dove's 21st opera, is a wittingly inventive feast for the eyes and ears. A full-length, through-composed grand opera with 29 characters, a sizeable chorus and a profound symphonic score, it is overflowing with visual delights, and children will love it! A sublime achievement by Martin Duncan and team, this production shines a bright new light on Collodi's dream-like original story, full of charm, darkness and magic. The superb ensemble stars Victoria Simmonds in the title role, and the orchestra and chorus respond splendidly under David Parry's vibrant baton.
