Play Me A Story….The Nutcracker


Lisa Stewart, violinist with the Acacia Quartet has a second string to her bow – quite literally. 

Lisa is not only a member of Acacia but also a successful illustrator. Right now, she’s putting the finishing touches to a series of illustrations for Esmeralda Tintner’s Play Me A Story…The Nutcracker and rehearsing for 4 performances of this charming production, described by Acacia’s patron Elena Kats-Chernin as containing “…. much joy and magic.” 

Violinists Esmerelda Tintner and Lisa Stewart , percussionist Kerryn Joyce and Lu Liu on Pipa (Chinese Lute) as ‘Tea’ will perform music from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Ballet, interwoven with storytelling, illustrations and ballet to tell the much-loved story of a tender-hearted little girl, Marie, and her favourite toy, a wooden Nutcracker carved to look like a soldier.

Nobody else wanted such a funny looking toy, but Marie loves her Nutcracker doll with all her heart, all the more so since nobody else seems to care about him…

Lisa Stewart

A unique event for the whole family. Let the sweet sounds of the violin transport you to the Land of the Sweets!
