Scottish Opera's Bambin0 by Lliam Paterson

A Scottish Opera, Manchester International Festival & Improbable co-production

Thursday 6, Friday 7 and Saturday 8 September Performances at 10am and 11.30am daily

Fresh from sell out runs in Edinburgh and Glasgow in 2017, this five-star show is back and calling at The Lemon Tree on its Scottish tour. Bambin0 is a first operatic adventure for six to 18-month-olds and their carers. 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 bambini! 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
