Recommended for children aged between 5-12 years.


Introduce your children to the magic of opera through Opera Australia’s delightful production of By the Light of the Moon.

Embark on a fabulous journey with a cantankerous cat and an exuberant owl in By The Light of the Moon. This fanciful all-ages opera explores the untold tales of Edward Lear’s beloved rhyme, The Owl and the Pussycat.

Ridiculous whimsy meets sublime melody in a wonderful new production, featuring the fantastic characters from nonsense poetry, nursery rhymes, as well as tunes you’ll recognise from the best-loved operas.

Opera Australia developed this travelling opera to enthrall children, complete with beautiful costumes and engaging scenery with professional opera singers performing the famous arias in English.
