Where the Wild Things Are
Mariinsky Concert Hall & Alexandra Palace Theatre, October 2019
A Fantasy Opera by Oliver Knussen, with words by Maurice Sendak
We gave Maurice Sendak’s classic tale of imagination and escape a musical makeover in Oliver Knussen’s fantasy opera. With words by Maurice Sendak, this is the story of MAX, a boy in a wolf suit who escapes from the tedium of home life into a wild land populated by strange misfit creatures who recognise him as their King.
It made my heart sing

We performed at Alexandra Palace theatre to an audience full of local families. We also did workshops at schools in the area, and gave workshop participants free tickets to the event.
We also took it on tour to Russia, and performed at the Mariinsky Concert Hall in St. Petersburg as part of the British Council UK-Russia Year of Music 2019.
