Little Lisa can’t sleep without the songs her grandmother used to sing for her. Lisa loves her grandmother, but she is no longer with her. That’s why Lisa goes on a journey to find her. The trip is long and difficult. But the musicians help her find what she is looking for in the end.
Violin player Peter Brunt, and cello and cimbaal player Michiel Weidner travel along with their music. Directed by Ulrike Quade, who also created the puppet Lisa. Images and video help portray Lisa’s world.
Lisa’s Great Journey is a performance for children age 6 and older, and was realized in co-production with Stichting Orkaan, producer of musical shows for kids. Premiered 7 November 2009 at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
