WAVES – Children’s Opera

The sound of water and the sound of the sea is the general theme of this interactive and engaging musical adventure for children at the age of 1-4 years. In the context of Nordic Mythology, the narrator-singer, represented by the composer Svafa þórhallsdóttir herself, will guide the children using the story to create interactive and engaging situations that will make the children feel part of a truly mythical adventure, where the music represents a mystical place for them to visit.
