- Wed Jul 13 - Sun Jul 17 2022
- From: $35.00
The Australian Chamber Orchestra has announced the much-anticipated return of its acclaimed children’s production, There’s a Sea in My Bedroom.
Following a sell-out premiere season at the Sydney Opera House in 2019, the ACO will present this captivating production for young children at the Orchestra’s state-of-the-art new home at Pier 2/3 in the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct, launching a series of exciting new ACO Family programs for 2022.
Based on Margaret Wild’s classic Australian story, There’s a Sea in My Bedroom interweaves Wild’s much-loved story, adapted by Tim McGarry, with original music by Australian composer Paul Stanhope, performed live by an ensemble of musicians from the Australian Chamber Orchestra alongside actor Jack Richardson. Audiences will be transported through music, movement, and immersive lighting into the fantasy world of Davey, a young boy who faces his fear of the ocean when, upon bringing home a seashell from the beach, he coaxes the water trapped inside to come out with the words: “Come out, sea, come out. I won't hurt you.” As the water fills his bedroom, Davey’s fear turns to joy as he plays amongst the imaginary waves and sea life.
