Australian Chamber Orchestra | There’s a Sea in My Bedroom

6 August 2022 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am AEST


An Australian Chamber Orchestra production

Based on the picture book by Margaret Wild and Jane Tanner.
Adapted by Tim McGarry.
Original music by Paul Stanhope.

David is frightened of the sea. He does not like it at all, not one bit.
But one day he finds a conch shell at the beach and takes it home – and he hears the sea trapped inside.
‘Come out, sea, come out,’ he says softly. ‘I won’t hurt you.’ 

Based on the beloved children’s book by award-winning author Margaret Wild, There’s a Sea in My Bedroom is an immersive and theatrical introduction to live classical music, capturing the magic of a child’s fantasy world.

Returning to the stage following a sell-out Sydney Opera House premiere season in 2019, this exquisite performance weaves together captivating storytelling with a specially commissioned score from Australian composer Paul Stanhope, performed live by a string quintet of ACO musicians.

Riverside Theatres and the Australian Chamber Orchestra are proud to present this beautifully reimagined story that promises to bring moments of joy, sadness, fear, magic, and laughter. 

30 minutes + post-show interaction of 15 minutes. 
Recommended for age groups 2-8 years | K-2 Schools.
