Creature Feature! Sat 28th May 10.30 @ St. George's, Edgbaston

Meet the creatures from B'Opera shows at this relaxed concert filled with animal magic for you and your little ones age 0-5. An interactive, multi-sensory concert of music by Mendelssohn, Saint Saens, Schubert, Rossini, our very own Phil and more.

Hello Bird, Hello Fish! Sat 28th May 2pm @ The Springfield Centre

Separated from her flock, Lost Bird is lonely and looking for a friend. Meanwhile, Noisy Fish is rejected by the shoal for fidgeting and talking when they want to do yoga in peace! Join B’Opera for a musical adventure where Lost Bird and Noisy Fish build a bond and strengthen their friendship as they realise that they have more in common than first meets the eye.

Alice and the Library Tree Sat 4th June 11am & 2pm Droitwich Spa Library

When a storm damages her beloved library tree, can Alice get it re-opened? Will she be any match for the White Rabbit and evil Queen of Hearts? Will her Fairy Godmother help like she's supposed to?

Come and find out in this magical interactive production, a whistlestop tour of beautiful music by Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Rossini and Wagner, woven around nursery rhymes, folksong, and original music, all sprinkled with musical fairy dust by B'Opera's resident composer, Phil!

Midsummer Magic Sat 9th July 10.00 @ St. George's, Edgbaston

B'Opera First Songs @ Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens, monthly on Fridays

B'Opera First Songs workshops are a way for you and your little one to explore how we can all use rhythm, movement and our singing voices to bring a story to life. A multi-sensory blend of performance and education led by professional musicians and trained educators, liberally sprinkled with fun and interaction.

Discover the Patreon page where you can access music videos, First Songs sessions, creativity at home on demand from as little as £5 a month.

 

Our baby operas tour everywhere from libraries, nurseries, art galleries and children's centres, to Birmingham Hippodrome. 

All of our performances are specially designed to engage your little one in a relaxed atmosphere - rest assured - no one will turn a hair if they make a noise, move around, join in, or get hungry!

First Songs

In these workshops, we use rhythm, movement, instrumental sound and our singing voices to bring a story to life. Each session has a different theme which acts as a springboard for little ones to bring their own ideas into the music making. These sessions are relaxed and interactive, so bring your singing voices and maybe your favourite teddy to join in the fun! You can find us at Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens in the warmer months, and at Birmingham Hippodrome and Coventry Belgrade for our theatre-based First Song sessions will be returning early 2022.
