About the work

Join us for a new interdisciplinary chamber version of this timeless fairy tale. Running just over an hour, with no interval, this afternoon show will be performed within the Waterperry woodland and is perfect for all the family. Directed by Associate Artistic Director Rebecca Meltzer with Music Director Ashley Beauchamp. This production incorporates British Sign Language, and will be presented in a new English translation by the creative team. The production is aimed at children aged 7+, but will be equally enjoyable for adults. Each performance will be accompanied by a FREE family-friendly introductory music-theatre and craft workshop which is included in the price of your ticket, please see below for more information. Performances will take place in the Waterperry Woodland. You will be allocated your seating position on arrival in the performance space, on a first come first served basis. We recommend you bring a blanket/rug to lay on the grass for your own comfort. You will not be able to bring chairs into the performance space. There will be limited seating available around the edge of the audience area for those that cannot sit on the floor. If you require access seating/wheelchair access for any on our productions, please contact us via ​ ​This production is supported by Arts Council England, The Opera Awards Foundation, Boshier-Hinton Foundation, Aspinwall Educational Trust, The Pye Charitable Settlement and delivered in partnership with Fusion Arts Oxford.
