Children & Family

Creating work for children is at the heart of what English Touring Opera does as an organisation; we bring specially-created participatory operas to over 8000 young people annually. As part of our efforts to bring our work to as many people as we can, we have created a series of new, educational operas for children to experience from home. Recent operas have included:

The Firebird: a new puppet opera based on the words of Michael Rosen.
Under the Little Red Moon: An online mash-up of animation and live action performance - the first opera made especially for under 4s.
Aidan: A colourful, fast-paced musical adventure; a fresh new take on Handel’s opera, Amadigi.
