Description

Libretto by Alasdair Middleton

Translation by Ralf Nürnberger

Commissioned by Opera North with Sadler's Wells Theatre

This adaptation, based on Carlo Collodi‘s original well-loved Pinocchio story, is a unique and magical full-scale work for a family audience, a spectacular introduction to the world of opera that combines fairytale dreaminess and humour with some surprisingly dark undertones, and ultimately asks the question‚ what does it mean to be really human?

The whole range of operatic voices is engaged in the retelling – nine principals, including coloratura soprano, basso profundo and countertenor, play 16 roles, and there are also small solo parts for members of the chorus.
