About the Show Less...

Three operas for children exploring creation. Read More >

The Early Earth Operas have been specially commissioned by the ENO’s education department and are inspired by children’s responses to the Book Of Genesis. Firestone explores the science of creation and is set in a world of insects and planets; Dogfight transfers the Cain and Abel story to a pack of wild dogs; and Animalarky presents the Flood myth without any human or divine involvement. Stunning animated projections, based on original children’s painting, are used to narrate key moments in the story.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
