The Moon Hares is a magical opera for young families commissioned and created by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment with original music by James Redwood alongside sections from Henry Purcell’s semi-opera, Dioclesian

Follow the residents of a mysterious village with a strict set of rules and regulations on their journey of self-realisation as they discover and inhabit their fluffy alter-egos. This energetic and theatrical performance of Hazel Gould’s story features people of all ages from Camden.

When a new teacher arrives in town, she is surprised to discover the children have never seen the moon as they are forbidden from going out at night. With the help of her landlord, she discovered that the village is filled with ancient magic; any person who dares venture into the moonlight is turned into a hare until morning! Able to live the life of a wild animal, exploring nature and the night, the children of the village buzz off the thrill of disobeying the rules to go on their nocturnal adventure..

Tickets: £5 - £82
