1/5. The firework-makers daughter


Based on a fairytale by Philip Pullman, this magical opera – aimed at children – is a tale of friendship and growing up. Lila wants to be a firework-maker, like her father, but when he tells her it’s no job for a girl, she sets out on a perilous journey of self-discovery, meeting pirates, demons and exotic animals along the way. The vivid score, plucky story and delightful cast will capture the imagination of children.
