In the eyes of its mother

Each infant is fair.

Land-dwelling beasts

Don't belong in the air.

All play and no work

Leaves the storecupboard bare.

The slow steady Tortoise

Will conquer the Hare.

Following their successful production of 'Jazz You Like It' for Highbury Opera Theatre in 2014, Tamsin collaborated with composer Scott Stroman again to turn some of Aesop's tales into Fables, a piece for the company's Youth group.  It was written for a Tenor soloist, a children's chorus, and the same 7 instruments as Stravinsky's Soldier's Tale, with which it formed an excellent double bill.
