This opera by award-winning composer David Bruce and poet Glyn Maxwell is based on an acclaimed children’s novel by Philip Pullman.

With the help of a talking elephant, Lila sets out to discover the secret of becoming a firework-maker. Bruce’s score is characterized by infectious energy and spirited humour, offering musical fireworks of its own.
