What sound does an elephant make? Or a tortoise? Or a kangaroo?

Back by popular demand, a 14-piece ensemble of fabulous players from the Orchestra of Opera North present this relaxed concert for young children and their families, hosted by Gemma Woffinden, Opera North Drama Coach. Seating is unreserved on mats and cushions and moving around and responding naturally to the music is actively encouraged!

During this magical interactive event, you will go on a unique journey with your child as you experience the wonderful music of Saint-Saëns’ The Carnival of the Animals really close up!

Arrival is welcomed from 11am (for 11.30am performance) or 1pm (for 1.30pm performance), with a creative craft activity available in the atrium.
