WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Have you ever wondered why whales are so huge? Why foxes are crafty or why polar bears have white coats? The answers to all these questions and more are found in this enchanting family opera by composer Julian Philips and librettist Edward Kemp. The work draws inspiration from Ted Hughes's well-loved story collection The Dreamfighter and Other Creation Tales.

Ted Hughes's magical stories provide inspiration for a new Royal Opera commission by Julian Philips and Edward Kemp. The Linbury Studio Theatre will be transformed into a magical world by director Natalie Abrahami and designer Tom Scutt. A diverse ensemble of singers and musicians will bring to life witty and irreverent tales that are sure to keep everyone, from ages 5 and over, engrossed and delighted.
