Guillem Tell


Once upon a time... there was an arrow, and apple and Gioachino Rossini

Guillem (aka «William») Tell is a Swiss hero who heads his people's revolt against their Austrian overlords and is forced to shoot an arrow at an apple placed on his son's head.

This fast-paced adaption of Rossini's opera was made by the company La Baldufa for family audiences. It uses a range of artistic techniques, including puppets, animation, and sets inspired by medieval times.
