Following a sold out run at the 2017 Fringe, this five-star show is back. BambinO is a first operatic adventure for six to 18-month-olds and their carers. This colourful work reinvents opera for children at an age when their minds are wide open to new sounds, images and experiences. Babies are free to explore during the performance, interacting with singers, musicians and each other. We hope adults might find new ways of enjoying music too – through the ears of their bambini! Written by Scottish Opera’s acclaimed former Composer in Residence Lliam Paterson and directed by Improbable’s Phelim McDermott.
