Alice's Adventures in Operaland

Playhouse, Arts Centre Melbourne
23 May 2015

A young girl and a white rabbit are transported to a wonderful world where everyone sings in this new creation for young families.

Join Alice and the White Rabbit as they are transported to Operaland, a world where the scenes and songs of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, Mozart’s The Magic Flute and other much-loved operas await discovery. This enchanting new production is specially designed to introduce young children and primary school students to the joy of opera.

We continue our tradition of performing opera for young audiences by combining much-loved operatic music with the magical story of Alice in Wonderland. In 2015, young families and schools are invited to discover the magic of Mozart and the beauty of Rossini as they follow Alice and the White Rabbit through a brand new world called Operaland.
