3 Feb - 10 Mar 2018
An enchanting storytelling experience inspired by Japanese folk stories and Opera North’s production of Madama Butterfly.
Be swept along on a magical adventure to the bottom of the ocean, visit the majestic palace of The Dragon King, ride on the shell of a Turtle and discover a mysterious treasure…
This kind of storytelling is such a rare treat; beautifully told, completely enchanting and wonderful to hear such gorgeous music in such an intimate setting.

Performances are suitable for ages 4+
