Mother's Day Special
Lullabies for children and iconic mothers: videos to watch with your mother!
Just like ours, mothers in ballets and operas are most of the time sweet and generous, as Janacek's Cunning Little Vixen (see picture) or the queen in Sleeping Beauty. However, this selection will also present you the most unworthy mothers who inspired choreographers and composers, just like Hansel and Gretel, abandonned by their mother who was too poor to raise them, or Preljocaj's Medea, iconic infanticide mother.
Thanks to this special "Mother's day" selection, listen to the most beautiful lullabies too (by Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, ...) and to a song, this time dedicated to your father (we could not help it) : "Oh mio babbino caro" excerpt from Gianni Schicchi performed by Maria Callas...
