About This Performance

The late Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s book comes to life in Oliver Knussen’s charming one-act opera. This new production by UK director Netia Jones turns the well-loved book into a magical multimedia event by using innovative technologies that combine live performers with Sendak’s incomparable artwork. Sharing the bill is Ravel’s beloved Mother Goose, presented with equally imaginative video imagery.

Come for:

The interaction of live performer images with Sendak’s unmatched artwork.

And more:

Gustavo Dudamel brings 20th-century musical fantasies to sonic life like no other conductor.

PLEASE NOTE:

Though this two-hour program is not a "kids' concert," it may be appropriate for some children based on parental discretion. All patrons, regardless of age, must sit quietly through the performance. No one under 6 will be admitted.

A co-production by the Barbican, London, Aldeburgh Music and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, in association with Lightmap
