How The Whale Became

Have you ever wondered why whales are so huge? Why foxes are crafty or why polar bears have white coats? The answers to all these questions and more are found in this enchanting family opera by composer Julian Philips and librettist Edward Kemp, based on Ted Hughes’s well-loved story collection The Dreamfighter and Other Creation Tales.
The Linbury Studio Theatre will be transformed into a magical world by director Natalie Abrahami and designer Tom Scutt. A diverse ensemble of singers and musicians will bring to life witty and irreverent tales that are sure to keep everyone, from ages five and over, engrossed and delighted.
Please note: All tickets must be exchanged at the Royal Opera House Box Office for venue tickets and free programme voucher prior to the performance. One programme per ticket, valid only on the performances bookable via this website.
