Bambino is a first operatic adventure for six to 18-month-olds and their carers.
Fresh from sell out runs in Edinburgh and Glasgow in 2017, and performances in Paris and New York this spring, this five-star show is back and touring Scotland.
Performed by two singers, a cellist and a percussionist, this unique and colourful work reinvents the world of opera 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 the performers and each other.
We hope adults might find new ways of enjoying music too – through the ears of their babini!
Written by Scottish Opera’s acclaimed former Composer in Residence Lliam Paterson and directed by Improbable’s ever imaginative Phelim McDermott.
Suitable for babies aged 6 to 18 months and their carers.
Running time approx. 45 mins.
Only babies (with one accompanying adult) will be seated in the front two rows for the best enjoyment of all the little ones. Additional Adults will be seated behind.
