We open the door to the world of opera on the terms of the very young children.
Babies, toddlers and their accompanying adults are invited to join on a poetic and gentle musical journey.
A holistic experience, where relationships are created and all senses are put into play. Both big and small settle on soft cushions between exciting objects, together with two opera singers and two musicians, and the adventure can begin. The children’s interaction in the moment is an essential part of the experience, and the language is both Danish and English, baby-speak and, not least, the language of the heart. The last part of the performance invites free play in the set and playful meetings with the four performers. A very special first meeting with opera where all senses are caressed.
AGE: 0-2½ year
