AN OPERA AUSTRALIA AND BARKING GECKO THEATRE COMPANY
CO-PRODUCTION IN ASSOCIATION WITH WEST AUSTRALIAN OPERA
"An extraordinary and vivid piece of theatre that demands to be seen.” ★★★★1/2
The rabbits came many grandparents ago. They built houses, made roads, had children. They cut down trees. A whole continent of rabbits...
John Marsden and Shaun Tan’s haunting picture book is adapted in this Helpmann Award-winning opera for children and families. A deeply moving story of hope amidst colonisation, The Rabbits sparks imaginations of the young and old, inviting us all to question modern society and our role in its future. The fantastical wonder of this strange world thrills and devastates with the operatic prowess of Kate Miller-Heidke’s exquisite score and performance, alongside a talented cast of opera singers and contemporary music performers. Lavish sets and kooky costumes realise Tan’s pictures in a spectacular tale sure to ignite curiosity, regardless of age.
