Sad News and Event Delayed!

Friends and Supporters of The Phantastic Theater and our work! We had announced that this Friday we were to travel to Minnesota and present the world premier of the New Full Orchestral version of THE MUSICAL FOREST… with my glorious friend Daniel Rieppel leading the Southwestern Minnesota Symphony… but alas… Dan’s dear wife has had a turn for the worse in her battle with cancer and Dan had to cancel all of his activities… So let’s all take a moment to cherish our friends!The show will go on!… The orchestra was kind enough to express their desire to have the concert in November… so we will let you know then of that news…

Experience my work The Phantastic Zoo! Tomorrow morning!

mestud2Tomorrow, Saturday morning March 4th at 11AM, I will present, with my talented daughter Sofia and dear friend the world renowned flutist Robert Dick, an extraordinary feast for the senses.  [The Brooklyn Fellowship 210 24th street,  (between 3rd and 4th aves)…

Under the umbrella of my series The Phantastic Theater – fine arts for the young of all ages, my work, The Phantastic Zoo, hits many levels simultaneously.  You will hear brilliant full classical symphonic music, see gorgeous colorful illustrative art and text flow by on screen (like a living book), dance and voice acting enhance the storytelling experience, as does the use of the large puppets I created.  You will hear fine actress Stephanie Erb read the part of The Mermaid.  The main attraction is, of course, Robert… who personifies the Wizard Zitthoona, The Dragon and the Living Tree at the end.  He willr4 perform on cflute, piccolo, alto and bass flutes and you will hear his sonorous acting voice throughout the show.  Theatrical presentation with lighting effects give a glamorous feel to what is… the presentation of serious art… art which appeals to people of all ages… and is a celebration of the Imagination.

REVIEWS:

Michael Spudic of ASCAP

“It is my pleasure to support Christopher Kaufman and his innovative production, THE PHANTASTIC THEATER, an extraordinarily entertaining concept that successfully brings together fine arts education with live performance… his collaboration with world renowned flutist/composer Robert Dick was fabulous… the expressions on the faces of the young people in attendance and their rapt attention spoke volumes… Leaving the theater, I had the opportunity to speak with a young dad who related how much he and his daughter enjoyed the presentation and how important it was that Kaufman so creatively encouraged people to use their imaginations…”

 Steven Sandberg of Dora the Explorer fame

I love this project! Christopher writes music that is sophisticated, striking, original, serious yet accessible to children. Plus a great story and great art. A wonderful project. — Steve Sandberg, composer, “Dora the Explorer.”
 “Tales Of The Ocean City by Christopher Kaufman, is a multimedia eBook that fuses narration, music, and visual art to create a rare kind of experience — a brilliant form of entertainment that masterfully blends these beautiful episodic stories with award-winning music and dazzling art. Fantasy readers who also love epic music, you’re in for a treat once you consume the wonderful world of Kaufman’s creative work”… F.J.Bayrog – Fantascize Mag.
