Sunday Photo Session with Characters from Pinocchio
Great news! There will be a special photo session after both Sunday matinee performances (30 Aug & 6 Sep)! Avail of a great chance to take a photograph with the magical characters from Pinocchio. See you at the L2 reception area after the matinee performances! Limited quota, first-come, first-served.

Come see one of the best-known fairy tales retold through ballet! The Cricket appears and the adventures of Pinocchio begin. From a piece of wood, Geppetto creates Pinocchio, whom he loves as his own son. Naughty little Pinocchio keeps on running into trouble, first with the fox and the cat, two greedy crooks, then with his best schoolmate, the naughtiest boy in class. To top it all off, he even picks up the habit of lying! His lies cannot deceive the Blue Fairy, who makes his nose grow longer as he tells lies. To look for Pinocchio, Geppetto sets out to the sea and ends up in the stomach of a whale. Will the Blue Fairy come to their rescue? Will Geppetto and Pinocchio reunite in the end? Will Pinocchio learn to be real boy and good son?
