La Balle Rouge Show


3 musical forms



Fred Ferrand alone on stage projects us into his musical thoughts.


Cello & Bandoneon

As in a tango, the musical confrontation between Marie-Ange Wachter and Jacques Trupin awakens passion, life…


String Quartet & Bandoneon

Jacques Trupin as a soloist, we hear the partition of the emotions of the child, framed by the strings that carry us away.

Learning through manipulative exercises to try to interpret the 3 emotions seen during the warm-up.
