Magnard Ensemble – Revolting Rhymes and Marvellous Music

In 2016, people across the globe will mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Roald Dahl, one of the most significant literary figures of the twentieth century. His contribution to the fields of children’s literature, poetry and screenwriting are unparalleled, and his subversive, humorous and darkly clever tales continue to entertain and thrill children across the world.

Join the Magnard Ensemble and narrator Rebecca Kenny as we explore his stories through the mediums of spoken word, theatre, and live music.

The Magnard Ensemble have devised this project in partnership with composer Paul Patterson, approved by the Roald Dahl Literary Estate and Marvellous Children’s Charity, and generously supported by the City Music Foundation.
