Scottish Opera: BambinO
Scottish Opera’s BambinO is back! This five-star, sell-out show has been entertaining babies around the world since it was created in 2017.
A magical piece of music theatre for infants up 12 months, it is aimed at an audience that does not often get a look-in at opera… but whose minds are wide open to new sounds and experiences.
BambinO is set in a captivating world of bright colours, fluffy clouds, and quirky characters. It tells the story of a young bird leaving its nest for the first time. Gentle, playful, and engaging, BambinO is written by Scottish composer Lliam Paterson, with original direction by Improbable’s ever-imaginative Phelim McDermott.
Don’t miss your chance to experience this unique celebration of both the power of music and of the infant imagination.
A co-production with Manchester International Festival & Improbable
