Children's Opera

 Hedgehog’s Home is a children's story about caring for the place you call home. Told through the universal language of music and poetry, this seemingly simple story holds an enduring and important message that we would all do well  to remember. The musical adaptation of this classic tale has been brought to London.

 First comissioned by Istros Books in 2012, the opera of the  story was workshopped with Fitzjohn's Primary school pupils in Conway Hall in November 2012, starring Dario Dugandzic as Hedgemond, Christina Gill as Fox and Nicola Wydenbach as the Teacher/Narrator (see photos below).

Istros Books has also joined forces with Honey-tongued Theatre Productions and the opera was reworked as the first children's musical production of Honeybear Youth Theatre. You can find out more about this production on the specially dedicated website, along with some audio files of the music and picutres to colour in at Hedgehog’s Home – the Musical
