Family opera performance in Aldeburgh
2nd March 2012
In The Belly of the Horse at Jubilee Hall, Aldeburgh
ETO is staging a one-off ticketed performance of In the Belly of the Horse, our opera for children aged 6 – 12 and their families, at Jubilee Hall in Aldeburgh at 2pm on Saturday 14th April.
Fresh from four sell-out shows at the British Museum, In the Belly of the Horse is an interactive performance with music and animation by Rachel Leach. It explores the fantastic story that leads the Greeks to build the wooden Trojan horse, told in many different and engaging ways including acting, singing, instrumental music, dance, animated film and puppetry.
The opera is performed by a multi-skilled cast of four professional singers and players, who also appear in The Barber of Seville and Eugene Onegin on our current Spring tour. It is the third of three new operas based on classical myths, including Crossing the Styx, performed at Jubilee Hall a few years ago.
The show lasts about an hour and a quarter. Tickets cost just £4.50 (both adults and children) and are available by calling the Aldeburgh Music box office on 01728 687110 or booking online here.
