The Story of Swan Lake

The Story of Swan Lake

Fall 2008 Storytelling
Ages: 6 & Up
CD Price: $16.98
A prince, a princess turned into a swan, a wicked magician - narrator Yadu and the London Philharmonic Orchestra present the story of Tchaikovsky's classic ballet with style. The lovely half hour-long track isn't all there is to this fun, informative CD, though. There's also a brief history of the composer, a short talk about the music itself, a sing-along original song and most surprisingly, a performance by heavy metal guitarist Joe Stump called "Speed Metal Swan."
