You are the Sun is a very first opera for babies and grownups that explores the magic of nature. Combining the joy of gentle classical singing and sensory play it is an invitation to see beauty in the smallest things and to let plants be our guides.
Audiences will help us to celebrate the gift of nature as we conjure a world out of breath, water, sunlight and soil in this magical musical adventure for 0-2s.
About HurlyBurly Theatre

You are the Sun is created by HurlyBurly (Catherine Carter and Sarah Forbes) with original music and words by Catherine Carter. The design is by Kirsty Harris. The show’s development has been supported by The Egg (Theatre Royal Bath), Portsmouth Guildhall and Watermans Arts Centre as well as Arts Council England.
It is performed by classical singers and theatremakers Sarah and Catherine and guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Gren Bartley. The ensemble have previously worked together on HurlyBurly Shows including ‘The Bug Hotel’ and ‘Meet me a Tree’ which have toured extensively nationally including to Hullabaloo, Gulbenkian, The Egg, Z-Arts, Half Moon and Warwick Arts.
