Two fables are at the centre of the concert. Aesop’s fable “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” tells the story of a young shepherd who, because he is bored, angers the villagers with his cries “wolf, wolf!” when no wolf is around. However the situation gets serious when eventually the wolf does appear and the villagers no longer take him at his word. The second fable deals with the famous story of the hare and the tortoise who compete against each other in a race. Of course the hare is the household favourite as he has won many races against his follow wood creatures. And of course, he is well aware of his credentials. But it is not unknown for price to go before a fall …
Both fables are told in Luxembourgish and are enhanced with animated pictures by David Leick-Burns. In between the two fables, the musicians present their instruments. In a simply join-in piece the children are encouraged to play along with the musicians.
