English Touring Opera Tours a Family Friendly Show to the Tête à Tête FestivalAug 2015

'Suitable for children of all ages' – it’s a challenge to produce a show that can be enjoyed by children whilst keeping adults entertained at the same time.  But English Touring Opera have won awards for this sort of thing and are now bringing their successful touring production of the multi-sensory, interactive opera Waxwings to the festival.  Olly and his sister find an injured waxwing on their way to the terrors of a new school.  When the teacher hears the bird sing in his pocket she calls for the Head, who is part cook, part monster, with an appetite not just for small birds, but for Olly too.  Somehow they have to escape.  Can the little waxwing help? Waxwings opens on August 6 for four performances at Kings Place, London
