This opera for babies uses parachutes to create an intimate world of wonder and interaction.

Designed by Moving Star Vocal Ensemble, the performance invites our youngest audiences into an expanding and contracting world and immerses them in a parachute’s movements as it becomes a metaphor for breathing. Bring imagination and your full selves into this baby and toddler-centric experience designed just for them!
