The UK Premiere of the fairytale opera Puss in Boots, for children, with children, takes place at The Mackay Theatre at the new 1532 Performing Arts Centre at Bristol Grammar School.

Tessitoura, a local touring opera company, presents performances of the short opera on Sunday 19 and 26 November at 2pm and 4pm. The production is a pilot for taking opera into schools with workshops and performance to introduce children to the beauty of opera in a really accessible way.

Soprano Sophie Kirk-Harris has adapted, translated, designed and directed the opera and is aided by adult professional singers in the character roles and supported by a large group of children aged from 4-18 who go to local schools including The Redmaid's High School, Badminton, BGS and Henleaze.
