This Show is for babies 0 - 18 months old

16 Singers is a rare opportunity to share a beautifully crafted music and theatre performance with your baby.

Celebrate the joy of music in this sparkling new production as the luscious sounds and movements of 16 singers are woven into a mesmerising performance, allowing the audience to ‘see’ and ‘hear’ sounds within a beautiful, eye-catching design.

"After Felix and I saw the opera on Monday morning, I've been thinking about it all week. It was quite a special thing to see, and it has really stayed with me. As we've been to the rest of our usual baby groups this week, I've realised how much time we spend dangling stuff in our poor babies' faces and grabbing their attention with an assault on their senses. The baby opera was so much more beautiful and subtle. I feel like it really fascinated him, rather than just grabbing his attention superficially. Afterwards we felt relaxed and calm, rather than the usual frazzled feeling."
