Adapted from the children’s book by Deborah Underwood, Interstellar Cinderella is a “fractured fairy tale” set in a sci-fi world where Cinderella dreams of a future in rocket ship repair, set to music and theater by WindSync. The WindSync cast serve triple duty as narrators, musicians, and characters in this fully staged piece complete with costumes and choreography. The music, excerpted from repertoire by Uruguayan-American composer Miguel del Aguila, creates a soundtrack steeped in Latin jazz and musics of South America and the Caribbean. Students will connect musical moods to scenes from the story, including the excitement of a ball, the panic of a ship malfunction, and the epic rush of space travel.
The book is available to order in English or Spanish through Scholastic.
WindSync offers Interstellar Cinderella as a portion of their children’s program, during which the audience learn about the five wind instruments, connect music to imagination, and participate in music-making.
This family event is presented by the Howland Chamber Music Circle, and the Howland Cultural Center.
