“…be free enough to create beyond the boundaries of any aesthetic … to improvise is the only real and constant dynamic revolutionary way to be”

– Melvin Edwards


We've had a very exciting couple of weeks. We flew to New York with Opening Skinner's Box as part of the Lincoln Centre festival and BambinO, our opera for babies, opened at the Manchester International Festival. Our youngest audience ever seemed to enjoy it. 
We'd like to say a heartfelt well done and thank you to all who've been involved in each project. 

Phelim & Lee

D&D Opera event
Do you love opera? Does it make you want to scream with frustration as well as purr with delight?  
Mighty organisations, resilient tiny ones, singers, audience members, managers, superfans, instrumentalists, choristers, casting directors, conductors, stage directors, technicians, production teams and indeed anyone who cares enough to turn up, you are all welcome for these two days.

BambinO at Edinburgh Fringe
After a wondrously successful run at Manchester International Festival, BambinO will head to the Edinburgh Fringe 8-20 August, at 10.00am and 11.30am. If you're unsure BambinO is for you and your little one, THIS might persuade you otherwise. "Really beautiful music, gorgeous singing, visually it looked stunning" says one happy audience member.
