A thrilling double-bill, with a promise at its heart.
Revel in the blended sound of over 80 young voices as WNO Youth Opera present their latest showcase.
With a touch of the supernatural, a sprinkle of satire and a load of mayhem, follow the light-hearted story of The Pied Piper of Hamelin as he uses his magical pipe to rid the town of rats. However, a broken promise compromises the town’s happiness as the piper seeks revenge. The illustrative music with wistful jigs, perfectly leads onto The Crab That Played With The Sea, based on Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories. Encounter the two phases of the tide and observe a crab’s transformation from an oversized troublemaker into a small, humble one.
Directed by Angharad Lee and featuring imaginative puppetry and a small ensemble of instrumentalists, the set is inspired by the youth camps of Llangrannog and Glan-Llyn and the vibrancy of village playgrounds.
