Listen, sing and play with Hurly Burly, creators of Over the Moon – a first opera for little people.
An interactive musical adventure that offers a calm, playful and creative first opera experience for babies and toddlers, weaving together gentle classical music with familiar nursery rhymes and games.
Join the three live musicians for musical tickling, stretching, chomping and stamping as we journey together through the day: waking, eating, playing and sleeping.
After the performance there is a play session for everyone to enjoy.
Let me meet you a tree.
What can you see?
Beneath the blue sky
as the summer floats by.
TREE is an interactive first opera for 0-2 year olds and their carers with music by Debussy, Delibes and Monteverdi as well as familiar nursery rhymes and specially written songs. Hurly Burly invites you and your baby on a multisensory journey through a year in the life of a tree:
- singing with blackbirds, marching through fallen leaves, smelling new blossom and feeling the wind on your cheeks. With beautiful singing and relaxing music at it’s core TREE will be an opportunity to unwind
and have fun for new parents, carers and babies.
A bit about the company:
- Hurly Burly offer new audiences positive and exciting first experiences of opera with the aim of inspiring a lifelong relationship with classical
music. The company was formed by classically trained singers Sarah Forbes and Catherine Carter following a commission from Celebrate
Voice Festival in 2016 to create a piece of theatre for babies. Hurly Burly creates interactive theatre for young audiences with existing
classical opera and song at the core of the work as well as incorporating physical theatre, improvisation, movement and spoken word. The
company create live performances that allow children and their grown- ups to engage and interact with classical music in an entirely age
appropriate environment with the space and freedom to experience and explore as individuals.
