A new puppet show opera set on a bleak island in the very north of the world. Read More >

Skitterbang Island is a new puppet opera for children aged 3 to 6.

Lost on a bleak and craggy island in the very north of the world, a brave little girl meets a strange and curious creature. Not only does he look very odd, he sounds different too. In his cave full of old metal and junk washed up from the sea, he shows her his latest collection, his newest treasure… which sounds so beautiful. But who does it really belong to?

Skitterbang Island is a heart-warming tale of discovery and friendship set in a fantasy world.
