Stories from the Opera

Family Day

Ever thought opera was not for you? Think again!

As Abigail sings arias, James will illustrate the stories behind music – live on stage.

Surprising, touching, fabulous and fun: this unique event will make opera truly accessible for all ages!

And join us for some free, fun art and craft activities and a musical gallery trail throughout the day
