Kenneth Grahame's classic children's novel is brought to musical life by American Costa Rican composer James Nathaniel Holland in his adaptation of "The Wind in the Willows" for theatrical dance production, orchestra, soloists and chorus. This fine work is waiting to be premiered. Perfect for children's concerts.

"A musically sophisticated, lyrical and sentimental adaptation of Grahame's novel, which emphasizes his poetic chapters of Rat and Mole, while maintaining the comedy of Mr. Toad. The genius of this adaptation is full of orchestral colors; a fine introduction to classical music and the orchestra for any young person or novice." --- The Nutley Globe

The full orchestral score with individual parts offered here contains the complete three acts with stage directions and is in concert pitch (no parts).  Instruments are: Fl12 (2 doubled on picc.), Ob, Eh, Cl12(2 doubled on bass cl), bsn 12 (2 doubled on contrabsn), hrn123 (mutes), trp12 (mutes), tim, pno, soloists (sop, alto,ten bass) and SATB chorus, and strings (sometimes solos).

Excerpts, scenes and/or songs can be performed as concert pieces. This work can also be used for other theatrical adapted productions too or a dramatic reading of the novel. (License may be required.)

This ballet is perfect for the young ballet company with few leads and much ensemble opportunities that can range from mixed male/female or all female.   Fun and enjoyable for kids of all ages.
