Meet Leo the Lion. Lions are usually fierce and strong but Leo doesn’t fit in; he just wants to love everybody and play with his friends all day long.  All Leo wants is to love and help his fellow lions, but his mother tells him that if he can't learn to hunt he has no place in the pride. So Leo is all alone ... until out in the wide world he meets lots of animals who appreciate his love and help.

Inspired by much beloved children’s story, The Lion Who Wanted To Love written by Giles Andreae and illustrated bv David Wojtowycz, guest artist-in-residence Paul Rissmann's gorgeous compositions combine with storytelling, audience participation and projected images.  Listen here for a sneak preview of this beautiful program.

This special EChO11 performance is presented in Education Week 2017 as part of our 2017 EChO Kids' Cushion Concert program.
