Wolf Witch Giant Fairy

A magical opera for families

In the far-away land of fairy tales is a magical wood full of fantastical creatures, enchanted folk and tall pines stretching as far as the eye can see. Here, the trees see wonders as numerous as their branches – lovers in peril, witches on broomsticks, wolves in disguise… you never know what you might find. We all know the famous fairy tales and how they end... or do we?

Wolf Witch Giant Fairy, a wild folk opera of music, mischief and magic, is a new collaboration between The Royal Opera and the always innovative Little Bulb, who return to the Linbury Theatre in this new family-friendly show for Christmas.
