Have you ever tried to imagine what would happen if Snow White had, as friends and teachers, seven small sounds? Come then, and find out. Indeed, you will listen! Snow White and the seven sounds is a wonderful show full of music and joy. During the show you will discover how pleasing is to learn music and how it is important not to give up when faced with difficulties. You can also help Snow White to learn music by singing along with her


The story is built on the plot of the famous “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” but the reason for the dispute between the Queen and the young Snow White is not the outer beauty but knowledge of music and talent in singing.The Queen, good singer, always wants to excel and be the cleverest soprano soloist of the kingdom. The mirror always reassures the Queen about her skill until the day it tells her that Snow White, the domestic of the court, is becoming a better singer than her. The Queen orders the musician of the Court (Tubolo) to bring the poor Snow White in the “Valley of the lost voice” and make she disappear.

Tubolo disobeys and leads Snow White into the woods where seven small characters teach her music. The Queen, warned from the mirror that Snow White is studying music and will sing at the “Great concert of the Kingdom”, disguises herself as a Witch, and gives Snow White a poisoned apple (Out of Tune Apple) that removes her beautiful voice.

A charming Prince and the conductor of the Orchestra will return the voice of Snow White. The music will also return the peace between the Queen and Snow White. At the great concert of the kingdom, the two singers will sing together by putting an end to their rivalry.
