‹ Back to What's On Orchestra of Opera North: Stick Man & Room on the Broom

24 Oct 2017

Part of the Kirklees Concert Season 2017-18

Terry Davies, Conductor

Join us this October half-term for the screening of two animated tales from the creators of The Gruffalo with René Aubry's evocative scores performed by the Orchestra. 

This early evening concert begins with the first live UK performance of Stick Man, a story of friendship and adventure. After going for a jog one morning, Stick Man encounters a bounding dog, who just wants to play fetch. A series of unfortunate events take him far from home. Will he ever get back? You'll have to wait and see... 

The enchanting Room on the Broom follows. The witch and her cat are happily flying through the sky on her broomstick when — whoosh! — a gust of wind blows away her hat, her bow and her wand! Will she find her missing things? Come along and find out!

The animated adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's book appeals to the child in all of us.
