Event Details

BASED ON THE BOOK written by John Marsden and illustrated by Shaun Tan
COMPOSED BY Kate Miller-Heidke, Libretto by Lally Katz
ADAPTED AND DIRECTED BY John Sheedy
MUSICAL DIRECTOR, MUSICAL ARRANGEMENTS AND ADDITIONAL MUSIC BY Iain Grandage
DESIGNED BY Gabriela Tylesova

In this world premiere, John Marsden and Shaun Tan’s compelling picture-book The Rabbits is brought to life as a new work of operatic theatre for adults and children alike.

This is a story of hope in the face of colonisation, displacement and despair. The world of The Rabbits invites us to question the constructs of modern life: society, culture, environment … the essence of our humanity.

The Rabbits brings together an extraordinary Australian creative team. Award-winning vocalist Kate Miller-Heidke leads a cast of singers and musicians, performing her own compositions and Lally Katz’s enchanting libretto, with additional music from Iain Grandage in John Sheedy’s adaptation of a revered classic.
