The Firework-Maker's Daughter David Bruce's opera, based on a story by Philip Pullman, is a magical tale of courage and friendship with Balinese shadow puppetry and folk-inspired music. In thi s theatrical event, suitable for all the family and for children aged 8 and upwards, c omposer David Bruce and poet Glyn Maxwell adapt Pullman's acclaimed children's novel The Firework-Maker's Daughter , telling the story of Lila who desperately wants to be a firework-maker like her father Lalchand. He claims it's no job for a girl so she runs away to learn the trade, followed by her friend Chulak and the lovesick white elephant Hamlet. Along the way they meet pirates, tigers and the terrifying Fire-Fiend in what p romises to be a fun theatrical spectacle set in a mystical Eastern land.

About Linbury Theatre

Part of the Royal Opera House , the Linbury Theatre was completely refurbished in December 2018 revealing, "a handsome new venue" ( Financial Times ) with a "warm, wood-lined interior" designed by architects Stanton Williams. Part of a three-year, £50.7 million programme of works, dubbed the 'Open Up' project, the Linbury Theatre - which seats up to 406 people - offers a smaller space than the main Royal Opera House stage.
