David is frightened of the sea. He does not like it at all, not one bit.
But one day he finds a conch shell at the beach and takes it home – and he hears the sea trapped inside.
‘Come out, sea, come out,’ he says softly. ‘I won’t hurt you.’
Based on the beloved children’s book by award-winning author Margaret Wild, There’s a Sea in My Bedroom is an immersive and theatrical introduction to live classical music, capturing the magic of a child’s fantasy world.
Returning to the stage following a sell-out Sydney Opera House premiere season in 2019, this exquisite performance weaves together captivating storytelling with a specially commissioned score from Australian composer Paul Stanhope, performed live by a string quintet of ACO musicians.
