Storm! Shipwreck! Lost on a bleak and craggy island in the very north of the world, a brave little girl called Marie meets Skitterbang, a curious cave-dwelling creature. In his home full of old metal and junk washed up from the sea, he shows her how he lives and they become great friends. But how will Marie’s uncle respond to her new friend when he finally finds her? Skitterbang Island is a heartwarming new opera just for preschoolers that delights in discovery, friendship and adventure.
“This mini-desert island opera kept every child (mostly aged three to six) in the audience riveted. Colorful, tuneful, poignant, entertaining – you can’t ask for much more from a show.” – The Stage, UK
“This show is delightful in every way.” – The Guardian, UK
