Treat little ears to musical soundscapes and classical compositions with the story of Kirra Quokka who loves music. Held in the Utzon Room.KIDsize Vibe: Jack and Mia, aged two and a half, excitedly stepped inside the Opera House for the first time to see this show. We entered the Utzon room and settled down on the carpeted floor in front of the stage. We decided the clarinet and drums were our favourite instruments. The show focuses on a Quokka who travels across Australia to reunite a lost ticket with someone at the Opera House. Once the musicians arrived on stage, they began playing their music Jack and Mia were enthralled with the beautiful sounds and colourful lighting. Luke Carroll is a wonderful storyteller and kept the children engaged with actions and movement. Once the show ended, we got to move closer to the musicians and their instruments. This was a wonderful morning and a great way to sample the Opera House. Ignite a passion for music from a young age and see this classical music show running until 21st May 2018.
