Paradise Planet

Paradise Planet is a celebration of the natural world that puts children at the heart of stories about the environment.

Paradise Planet is a collection of ocean stories for families and children in primary schools (KS2). This world of musical mayhem follows the adventures of humans who live on the waves, and the animals that live beneath them. This interactive opera celebrates the awesome power of the ocean – but things are not all as they seem and the animals are in danger. As the stories collide it’s up to us to save this magical world.

This interactive performance uses song, live musicians and sound-design wizardry to show children that they have the power to change the world.

Wirtten by artists Hanbury & Groves, the opera is performed by a cast of 4 professional singers. The musical ensemble is cello, clarinet and keyboard.

The opera is accompanied by extensive resources for teachers. This curriculum-linked piece draws from the KS2 Science syllabus on ‘Living Things’ including classifying and naming animals, food chains, changing natural environments, human impact, conservation, and working scientifically. There will also be songs for children to learn ahead of the visit of ETO to a school.

Running time: approx. 1 hour
