Meet Me A Tree is an interactive first opera for 0-2 year olds and their carers.
With music by Schumann, Delibes and Monteverdi as well as familiar nursery rhymes and original songs, HurlyBurly invites you and your baby on a multi-sensory journey through a year in the life of a tree.
Sing with blackbirds, march through fallen leaves, smell new blossom and feel the wind on your cheeks with us. With beautiful singing and relaxing music at its core Meet Me A Tree will be an opportunity to unwind and have fun for new parents, carers and babies.
For their first show Over the moon “Rarely have I seen such a young audience so comfortable, captivated and curious.” Flossie Waite, Children's Theatre Reviews
“Part of the reason it’s so moving is that it’s interactive and tiny audience members are encouraged to join in – and they did so very enthusiastically at the performance I saw. And to see a child of, say eight months, sitting up listening acutely to a bit of Ravel or Debussy is quite something.
Of course it only works as well as it does because of the quality of performance. Both Carter and Forbes sing beautifully but gently so there’s nothing remotely abrasive or “operatic” in their voices.” Susan Elkin, Education and Training Editor at The Stage: 5 stars
Please note: This performance has either been created specifically with babies in mind or has been programmed in our studio space so admission for a baby will require the purchase of a standard child’s ticket, purchased at the same time as the rest of the group.
Buggies and pushchairs are stored downstairs in the theatre foyer during the show.
