We recently went to a spell-binding, multi-sensory performance of B’Opera’s Alice and the Library Tree at St.Georges Church, Edgbaston B15 3DQ.
The ticket cost £15 for 1 adult and up to 2 children. We went by train and got off at Five Ways and then walked (strolled really) for about 20 minutes to get to the church. You can also park at the church or in nearby streets.
There is always a warm, cheery welcome and you can sit where you like (floor, chair or pew). They scatter lots of touchy-feely cushions on the floor to sit on.
The storyline of Alice and the Library Tree has strong values like working together and not giving up. The music (piano and up to 3 voices) was mesmerising, approximately 50 minutes of playing and singing a variety of classical pieces.
There is no problem if children need to get up and move around or eat and there is even a breakout area.
We’ve been to a couple of B’Opera’s performances and always thoroughly enjoy it, there’s always one piece of music that brings me to tears. This time it was Handel’s Ombra Mai Fu stunningly played on the piano and sung by Jac as the children walked down the aisle, taking part in the story.
We look forward to A Winter’s Tale in December. For more information follow the link.
