The Firework-Maker's Daughter: Opera North, The Opera Group
Lila desperately wants to be a Firework-Maker like her father, but when he refuses to teach her, she runs away from home to discover the three gifts of firework making for herself. With the help of her friends, Chulak and Hamlet the love-sick elephant, Lila faces pirates, tigers and the terrifying Fire-Fiend on her perilous quest.
This new opera is a vivid re-telling of the award-winning children’s novel by author Philip Pullman. With a libretto by Glyn Maxwell, David Bruce’s music sparkles with humour and musical fireworks of its own and is brought to life by magical puppetry.
Discover this gripping tale of friendship, determination and adventure that will be an explosive theatrical experience for all the family.
Opera North has established itself as one of the leading arts companies in the United Kingdom and one of the most imaginative opera companies in Europe. The Company is committed to bringing a wide variety of high quality work to established audiences for one of the most exciting art forms in Britain today.
