Where the Wild Things Are/Higglety Pigglety Pop!

Where the Wild Things Are/Higglety Pigglety Pop!T1942433954
Oliver Knussen changed the parameters of British opera with his two picture-book stage works Where the Wild Things Are and Higglety Pigglety Pop! These colourful and opulent creations were inspired by the drawings of Maurice Sendak, whose deeply-felt stories for children have enchanted generations. Knussen's scores, beautifully complex and yet always touching and involving, are performed by the Britten Sinfonia and a cast of talented, versatile singers. Specially commissioned multimedia stagings by Netia Jones will see singers, orchestra and projections come together in a joyous celebration of these fun, spontaneous and utterly unreal operatic gems.
