BambinO – a new opera for babies
BambinO was a pioneering piece of music theatre aimed at an audience that doesn’t often get a look in at the opera – babies.
This colourful work reinvents operatic language and traditions for children at an age when their minds are wide open to new sounds, images and experiences. Babies are free to crawl around during the performance, interacting with singers, musicians and each other. Even adults may find new ways of hearing music through the ears of the young.
Written by Scottish Opera’s acclaimed Composer in Residence Lliam Paterson and directed by Improbable’s ever-imaginative Phelim McDermott, who has directed at opera houses around the world, BambinO was be a twin celebration of the possibilities of music and the power of the infant imagination.
BambinO was be presented at five venues around Greater Manchester in July including Salford Sports Village.
Tickets cost just £5 for one adult and one baby (aged 6-18 months) which was fantastic value for money.
