Come into a vibrant, sensory, musical world…

7 Jul - 27 Aug

Adventure Theatre Ages
2 - 5

With a sparkling musical score by Brazilian percussionist and composer Adriano Adewale, Polka and The Royal Opera bring you the perfect introduction to music and theatre.

Hatch follows the extraordinary journey of an egg through different sensory worlds, each bursting with a mesmerising blend of sights and sounds. From flowing water and whistling winds, to the beautiful call of a bird and a voyage through the clouds, we discover new sounds in unlikely places.

Join the egg and lend a helping hand, as it finally reaches its resting place, ready to hatch.

Running time: approx. 40 minutes

A co-commission and co-production between Polka Theatre and The Royal Opera 

‘Adriano Adewale’s samba and jazz influenced score is delightful and beautifully performed by actor-musicians who establish excellent contact with their young audience’  British Theatre Guide



Hatch is supported by PRS for Music Foundation, The Leche Trust and Royal Victoria Hall Foundation
