A new co-production with Manchester International Festival & Improbable
The long-awaited follow up to the ground-breaking BabyO, BambinO is a brand new piece of music theatre, again aimed at an audience that doesn’t often get a look in at opera – babies.
This unique and colourful work for infants aged 6 to 18 months reinvents operatic language and traditions for children at an age when their minds are wide open to new sounds, images and experiences. Babies are free to explore during the performance, interacting with singers, musicians and each other. We hope adults might find new ways of enjoying music too – through the ears of their bambini!
“It is inspiring to create a new opera for what is possibly the most discerning - and important - audience there is. We all know that babies respond to music and we want to nurture and stimulate that relationship through their very first opera." Phelim McDermott
Written by Scottish Opera’s acclaimed Composer in Residence Lliam Paterson and directed by Improbable’s ever-imaginative Phelim McDermott, BambinO will be a twin celebration of the possibilities of music and the power of the infant imagination.
