A magical piece of music theatre for infants up to 12 months, BambinO is aimed at an audience that does not often get a look-in at opera… but whose minds are wide open to new sounds and experiences.
BambinO is set in a captivating world of bright colours, fluffy clouds, and quirky characters. It tells the story of a young bird leaving its nest for the first time. Gentle, playful, and engaging, BambinO is written by Scottish composer Lliam Paterson, with original direction by Improbable’s Phelim McDermott.
Don’t miss your chance to experience this unique celebration of the power of music and the infant imagination.
