Beautiful music for tiny ears
B'Opera make beautiful music for young ears, through high quality, interactive musical experiences. Our aim is to make classical music available to babies, toddlers and their grown-ups of all backgrounds.
A socially distanced B'Opera Relaxed Concert for little ones age 0-5 and their families.
B'Opera Relaxed Concerts are back with a midsummer musical feast for the senses on Saturday 10th July at 10am and 12.30pm, St George's Church Edgbaston B15. Tickets are already selling fast so please don't wait.
Our babies and toddlers have been deprived of artistic and cultural experiences for so long. Let them revel in music by Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky, Grieg, Handel, Britten, Sondheim and more, all in the amazing acoustics of St George's Church. B'Opera have been finding ways to keep these experiences interactive and multi-sensory while looking after everyone through social distancing in this spacious and ventilated church.
And rest assured - no one will turn a hair if your child makes noise, moves around, joins in, or gets hungry!
You may want to bring a scarf/muslin and something to shake or bang.
Come and enjoy a relaxed concert with 40 minutes of opera and classical song alongside beautiful folksongs and audience participation, all sprinkled with games and interaction, as we explore midsummer magic through music and play.
Brought to you by professional musicians Zoë, Jac and Phil, you can expect a warm welcoming atmosphere, fun and laughter, beautiful music, and nursery rhyme requests. Book here.
“Beautiful music, very relaxed and totally child and baby centered. A wonderful experience for children and grown ups alike!” Facebook recommendation
“Talented musicians, warm and friendly atmosphere, and beautiful music that isn't simplified for babies. The venue and format is ideal for parents with more than one tiddler; both my baby and toddler are enthralled throughout.
In a new collaboration with Moseley Road Baths, OPUS and -underscore, B'Opera are running a free workshop for babies and toddlers in the baths to explore the sonic landscape and help to create a new language of sound for an opera in the space.

"It's fantastically sung, engaging and has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. My daughter loved exploring all the sensory opportunities that the performers created and was captivated by the music/singing."
"I can hand on heart say that I think every child, everywhere, should have access to these sessions. They’re educational, fun and entertaining."

"B’Opera are inclusive, they want beautiful music to be enjoyed by all. Regardless of social status, money, ethnicity, religion and any other factors, and this, to me, is beautiful in itself. "

"The music, beautiful songs and warmest welcomes ignited something within me. Reminding me of the ‘more’ I have if I dig a little deeper. The restorative quality I felt from your performances has had a huge effect."
Sometimes it’s hard going to things as a woman of colour. You don’t know what to expect. I’m not Hindu but even the fact that you’re doing a Holi-themed session really impressed me.”
