Shackleton's Cat Opera

Shackleton's Cat - Children's Opera

Sat 21 April

The Polar Museum

Shackleton's Cat returns in 2018, as part of English Touring Opera's award-winning strand of operas for young people. The opera features nine performers, including singers and players, and 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 features an ingenious set, with maps and images from the expedition, interactive songs and a puppet cat!

The opera lasts just over an hour and is created for children aged 7-11 and their families.

Cost: Adult: £8 Child: £5

Ages: 8+
