Alice and the Library Tree is an interactive performance for little ones and their grown-ups by local children’s opera company B’Opera, exploring the wonder of libraries and how they inspire curiosity.


When a storm damages her beloved library tree and the Queen of Hearts orders it to be chopped down Alice must learn to stand up for what she believes in, along with perseverance and some roof repair skills, to get the library re-opened.


Will Alice be any match for the White Rabbit and evil Queen of Hearts? Will her Fairy Godmother do what fairy godmothers are supposed to do and actually start helping?


Come and find out in this magical interactive production, which takes you and your little ones on a whistlestop tour of beautiful music by Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Rossini and Wagner, woven around nursery rhymes and folksong, all sprinkled with musical fairy dust by B’Opera’s resident composer, Phil!


Originally commissioned by FOLIO Sutton Coldfield and funded by Arts Council England.
