After a sold-out premiere at the Kennedy Centre in Washington, DC, the spectacular multi-media show The Man with the Violin* comes to Ottawa for its Canadian debut. Adapted from the award-winning picture book, the show tells the true story of how virtuoso violinist Joshua Bell busked for an hour in a crowded subway station as thousands of oblivious commuters rushed by — while many of their children begged them to stop and listen. With colourful video animation and a star performance by Bell himself, The Man with the Violin* works its magic on audiences both young and old.
