Catch A Sea Star
- Seaglass Arts

event details

Hosted by Seaglass Arts

An opera for babies and toddlers.


Deep under the sea lies a colourful kingdom full of beautiful music and mysterious creatures. But the king has lost his sea-star, and his ocean garden is sad and dull. Can Lyra and her dog find the missing star, and restore the sparkle to the underwater world?

With live music by JS Bach, this interactive multi-sensory opera offers babies and toddlers a chance to explore a fantasy world of music and playful possibilities. This show is for children aged 0-2.5 years with their parents/carers.
