BambinO from Scottish Opera is back! This five-star, sell-out show has been entertaining babies in Scotland and around the world since it was created in 2017.

A magical piece of music theatre for infants up 12 months, it is aimed at an audience that does not often get a look-in at opera… but whose minds are wide open to new sounds and experiences. BambinO is set in a captivating world of bright colours, fluffy clouds, and quirky characters. It tells the story of a young bird leaving its nest for the first time. Gentle, playful, and engaging, BambinO is written by Scottish composer Lliam Paterson, with original direction by Improbable’s ever-imaginative Phelim McDermott.

Don’t miss your chance to experience this unique celebration of both the power of music and of the infant imagination.

A co-production with Manchester International Festival & Improbable

Supported by Scottish Opera’s New Commissions Circle and Scottish Opera’s Education Angels.

For imagination and enchantment, this enterprise deserves every rosette going
