A popular book brought to life

Worcester Editorial 22nd Oct, 2019   0

HALF term family fun will be on offer in the city when Peace at Last comes to the Swan Theatre for young and old to enjoy.

The hour was late and Mr Bear was tired. But he could not sleep – however he tried and wherever he tried. Snore, snore went Mrs Bear. Tick-tock, tick-tock went the clock. Would he never get to sleep?

Mr Bear can’t sleep, Mrs Bear is snoring. So he goes to sleep in Baby Bear’s room. But Baby Bear is pretending to be an aeroplane. So he goes to sleep in the living room.

Olivier Award-winning OperaUpClose team up with Gallions Primary School in Newham to create a new opera for three to five year olds, based on Jill Murphy’s much-loved picture book, which has been delighting families for generations.

Performed in a new composition for three singers, accompanied by harp and woodwind, Peace At Last will tour to schools and theatres across the UK throughout 2019 and will arrive in Worcester next Wednesday (October 30)
