“Opera North’s enchanting staging of The Adventures of Pinocchio. Jonathan Dove’s 21st Century opera, is a wittily inventive feast for the ears and eyes. A full-length, thoroughly composed grand opera with 29 characters, a sizeable chorus and a profound symphonic score, it is overflowing with visual delights, and children will love it, full of charm, darkness and magic, it sheds new light on Collodi’s dream-like original story.
It is the story of a wooden puppet that wants to become a real boy. After many adventures where he learns to tell the truth, work and study hard and overcome laziness he eventually succeeds. Famously, his nose grows when he tells lies. Featuring ‘The Blue Fairy’.
This is a world premier recording
This opera was premiered in Leeds and then went on an England-wide tour and was later premiered in Germany. It is a ray of light in the repertoire of contemporary music theatre.
