Performance: You Are the Sun by Hurly Burly Theatre

Fri 16 February 2024 , 10:30am-11am

Weston Park Museum

Enjoy a special performance of a very first opera designed for 0-2 year olds! 

You are the Sun is a very first opera for babies and grownups that explores the magic of nature.  

Combining the joy of gentle classical singing and sensory play, it’ is an invitation to see beauty in the smallest things and to let plants be our guides.   

Celebrate the gift of nature as we conjure a world out of breath, water, sunlight and soil in this magical musical adventure for 0 – 2 year olds.  

HurlyBurly Theatre make playful theatrical experiences for babies and adults with classical singing at their heart. They make shows where babies are free to be themselves and grown-ups have a chance to relax, bond and play.  

This show is a part of Monty on the Move – an exciting programme of theatre brought directly to you whilst The Montgomery Theatre and Arts Centre is closed for important redevelopment works. 

This is a pay what you can performance to make sure everyone who wants to has an opportunity to see the show. Running time is 35 minutes. 

About the company

HurlyBurly was founded by Artistic Directors Sarah Forbes and Catherine Carter in 2016. We originally trained as classical singers and began to work together as HurlyBurly as very new parents with babes in arms. We make shows that we would have wanted to experience at that time for ourselves – where babies can be themselves and so can their parents. We welcome everyone and work hard to make high quality performances that inspire people to develop a lifelong relationship with singing and music.
