SYNOPOSIS: The Spidermaiden and the Runaway Plum Blossom is a musical fable about a Plum Blossom who leaves her tree looking for adventure. However she unexpectedly gets caught in the Spidermaiden’s silken web. The Spidermaiden promises to set the Plum Blossom free if she can solve her tuneful riddle. Come hear the flute, clarinet, viola and cello create a mystical sound world and help solve the riddle of the Spidermaiden’s song in this charming 30min chamber opera for the whole family, where music can help you make sense of the world.
