Sydney Opera House, ABC Classic Kids: Music for The Dreaming, 10am and 11.30pm, From $20, 2-5 years old

An immersive introduction to live classical music and storytelling created especially for young children.

Discover how sounds can tell stories 

Discover how sound can tell stories and create atmosphere in this magnificent musical experience, Music For The Dreaming. With new compositions inspired the seasons and the natural environment in Wreck Bay, we learn about the ‘old ways’ of life on the NSW South Coast through stories and cultural teachings told to us by Budawang Elder from the Yuin Nation, Noel Butler – one of Aunty Brenda’s mob!

Join ABC Bushwacked’s Kamil Ellis and Ensemble Offspring in this tailored and interactive show.  Little ones will develop sensory perception, musical literacy and awareness of instrument sounds in a fun and relaxed format, perfect for ages 2 – 5.  Music for The Dreaming is a brand new production celebrating new classical music for young Australian audiences. After the show, kids can meet the musicians and instruments.

Listen to the Music for The Dreaming podcast series on the ABC KIDS listen app.
