Indie–pop artist Kate Miller-Heidke brings to life John Marsden and Shaun Tan’s compelling picture–book The Rabbits in this new work of operatic theatre for adults and children alike, with musical direction, arrangements and additional music by Iain Grandage.
The Rabbits tells a story we all know: a story of colonisation, civilisation and progress—a story about displacement, destruction and culture clash. And in that landscape, it tells a story of hope taking root.
Gabriela Tylesova’s eccentric sets and costumes realise Tan’s pictures in all of their mystical wonder, while Lally Katz has turned Marsden’s spare poetry into an enchanting libretto.
