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

This reduced orchestral score for piano and voices includes all stage directions and aligns measure by measure with the full score for orchestra.  Can be used for dancers, or vocalists and final conducting for easier use and rehearsal.  Can be used with the performance CDs of this work also.

Full score only, full score with parts, individual parts only, or performance CD sold separately.

Songs included are Grahame's verbatim of "Duck's Ditty" and Carol (Villagers All This Frosty Tide), "Forget", "The Incredible Mr. Toad," and "The Toad Came Home"

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.
