An interactive opera especially for babies and toddlers aged 0 — 2½ years
Before words and music were sounds, which blossomed into beautiful patterns and sang the world into being. Inspired by the Australian Lyrebird – a bird that can mimic any sound and make it into song – Spitalfields Music presents an enchanting new production created by the team behind the award-winning Musical Rumpus series, Zoë Palmer, Sam Glazer and Sophia Lovell-Smith.
As the story unfolds in a space full of sounds and colours, you and your baby can freely explore and make music together.
