The Very Ugly Duckling

Idyllic countryside … captured by a beautiful painting within a magnificent golden frame. Geese fly, ducks tap dance past, majestic swans and yes, baby ducklings. But oh dear! there is one ugly duckling that puts a blot on the landscape!

Can Charles Crane the Eggologist make the picture beautiful again?

Jactitio’s stunning visual version of the well known tale uses music from different cultures. Handel’s Firework music, Tchaikovky’s Swan Lake and music from Africa – Emperors and Empresses of sound.
