Two comedians from the Golden Age, called La Cervantona and El Cervantillo, are in charge of bringing the different episodes of Don Quixote a bit closer to the little ones –episodes that serve as the basis for Telemann's musical work–, as well as guiding them in their active listening. Through poetry, juggling, and humour, they will fulfil their mission of narrating, evoking, and inviting listening while involving the audience together with the musicians of the symphony.
