Friday 17th of March – Town Musicians of Bremen @ Nuevo Teatro Circo
A donkey, a dog, a cat and a rooster are forced to leave the farms where they have always lived. They leave with a bundle of belongings and an uncertain future. They don’t know each other, but on the journey through the fields they find each other. Little by little they discover that they are united by the desire to be musicians and between songs and dances they decide to head to Bremen, the musical city par excellence. They soon realize that some thieves who roam the region have specialized in stealing dreams. Our adorable animal friends don’t know if they will make it to Bremen, but one thing is clear: being together is the important thing.
