“This is don Nicanor, who lived in a Flower”…
This is the beginning of the story written in verse, of Don Nicanor, an altruist wonderful character who travels the world rescuing animals in trouble: a cow, a monkey, a penguin, a bear, a she-cat, a dog, a sperm whale, a donkey… They decide to set up a circus together where each of them contributes their peculiar skills.
Toy Piano and a chamber music group are the protagonists of this staged concert in which the poems of the great poet and pedagogue Mar Benegas tell the story of Don Nicanor and his circus for the youngest ones, with illustrations by artist Ximo Abadía, whose drawings are the setting for all the show.
