A musical performance after the books by Pamela Travers and music by Maksim Dunayevsky (arr. by Loreta Narvilaitė and Mindaugas Bačkus; Lithuanian text by Dainius Sobeckis and Evelina Šimelionė)


We have good news for you: the educational programme “The Orchestra of Playful Music in Concert with Mary Poppins,” which was first presented two years ago to a great public acclaim, is back by public demand. This musical performance for the whole family is based on the stories by Pamela L. Travers and Maksim Dunayevsky’s music written for the Russian film Mary Poppins, Goodbye.

We dedicate this performance to all family members, since moms and dads of today grew up listening to the songs from the music to this film. Many current moms wished they were as elegant as Mary Poppins when they grow up. Quite a few dreamt about having a dress, an umbrella or a handbag like hers…

Catchy tunes reveal a host of colourful emotions in the performance of singing actors Evelina Šimelionė and Donatas Želvys, director and actress Laima Akstinaitė (from the Klaipėda Youth Theatre) and the Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra. Mary Poppins will give her ridiculous instructions to children and do her magic on stage. We will be compelled to admire the wisdom and good looks of this ‘Lady Perfection,’ and return home full of benign feelings and memories.
