Once Upon a Time… all the stories that we loved as children began this way. As adults, the dream of bringing the magic of these fairy tales to life remained and became the inspiration for Talespin, Musical Tales for Big and Small.
Talespin’s name comes from the 18th-century phrase „to spin a tale“. While working their spinning wheels, English women would invent, tell and retell stories to pass the time. In a similar way, Talespin brings fairy tales from around the world to the stage. With the help of a violin, a piano, and a narrator as well as beautiful illustrations, imaginative new artistic worlds are spun into existence.
This magical, musical picture book in concert has touched audiences around the world, from India to Canada. Based in Vienna, Austria, Talespin is enchanting for children, adolescents and adults alike.
