Never before has bad behaviour and mischief been as much fun as in Opera North’s family-friendly production, based on Hilaire Belloc’s “Cautionary Tales for Children”.
This piece of musical theatre has been commissioned by Opera North, our partner in DARE, as an ideal introduction to opera for children under ten. It brings the wit and humour of the Cautionary Tales to the stage.
Meet wild Rebecca who slams doors, George who plays with dangerous toys, 'run-away' Jim, lying Matilda, and get tied up in knots with Henry King who chewed string! The frightful fate of these badly behaved children is brought bursting to life by Errollyn Wallen's lively melodies and inventive rhythms, which perfectly match the fun mischief of Belloc's clever words.
Cautionary Tales will be performed in the beautiful Howard Assembly Room at the Leeds Grand Theatre on the following dates:
Thursday 10 March - 7.00pm
Friday 11 March - 2.00pm
Saturday 12 March - 2.00pm and 6.30pm
The performances will last about one hour.
