Paradise Planet

Paradise Planet is English Touring Opera’s latest opera for children

Paradise Planet is a collection of ocean stories for families and children. This world of musical mayhem follows the adventures of humans who live on the waves, and the animals that live beneath them. This interactive opera celebrates the awesome power of the ocean – but things are not all as they seem and the animals are in danger. As the stories collide it’s up to us to save this magical world.

This interactive performance uses song, live musicians and sound-design wizardry to show children that they have the power to change the world.

Written by artists Hanbury & Groves, the opera is performed by a cast of 4 professional singers. The musical ensemble is cello, clarinet and keyboard.

This curriculum-linked piece draws from the KS2 Science syllabus on ‘Living Things’ including classifying and naming animals, food chains, changing natural environments, human impact, conservation, and working scientifically.

Running time: approx. 1 hour
