Shackleton's Cat - Children's Opera

Shackleton's Cat returns in 2018, as part of English Touring Opera's award-winning strand of operas for young people. The opera tells the story of the voyage and destruction of the Endurance 100 years ago, and the subsequent tale of survival against all odds. The opera lasts just over an hour and is created for children aged 7-11 and their families.
