An enchanting children’s opera developed from the book by former Children’s Laureate Michael Morpurgo.

On an island lives a strange and forbidding giant – the nearby villagers are wary of him, but is he the reason that fish can no longer be caught in the silver lake? Can the Stardust Seller help with magic dust? By accident, one young girl discovers that she can help the giant, and he in turn can help save the village.

Suitable for theatregoers aged seven and older.
