If you were to imagine the audience for an opera show, what characteristics would spring immediately to mind? We’ll place a bet that “babies” isn’t near the top. But, this is exactly who BambinO - Lliam Paterson’s five star ‘opera for babies’ – is targeted to!
“The smallest ears as well as the seasoned connoisseur will find something new and joyous in BambinO. And for adult opera newbies, it’s not every day you get to have a truly new theatrical experience at the same moment as your baby!’”, says Paterson.
BambinO celebrates the possibilities of music and the power of the infant imagination through opera adapted for children at an age when their minds are wide open to new sounds, images and experiences. Babies are encouraged to explore during the performance, and to interact with the singers and each other.
Scottish Opera’s Director of Education and Outreach, Jane Davidson, said: ‘This is a perfect opportunity to experience the highs and lows of opera, created in miniature, through the eyes and ears of your very own bambinos.
Watch as babies and performers explore a beautifully crafted world full of golden eggs, soft blue cushions and soaring notes as a baby bird takes flight for the very first time.’
And this creative idea has proven popular, to say the least – BambinO recently had sell-out tours in Paris and at The Metropolitan Opera in New York, and is being performed at The Royal Opera House Muscat in Oman next year! This September it comes to Perth Theatre so you – and your bambinos – can get the chance to see it in person.
BambinO - Friday 14th and Saturday 15th September, 10 am and 11.30am each day. Perth Theatre
