Fantastical encounters lead Thumbelina to faraway lands where she finds the meaning of freedom & true love. A Hans Christian Andersen tale brought to life in a one-woman show by Egyptian-German singer-composer Merit Ariane, through song from Europe to the Middle East, referencing Sephardic folklore, Gershwin, Darwish and Montsalvatge. This follows Turkish oud-player Baha Yetkin, virtuoso of the Turkish Makam, a constantly evolving music form from Istanbul’s 13th century, one of the world’s great music traditions.
