An explosive musical adventure
Based on the story by Philip Pullman

Lila desperately wants to be a firework-maker like her father. But when he refuses to teach her, Lila runs away from home to discover the three gifts of firework-making for herself. With the help of her friends, Chulak and Hamlet, the love-sick elephant, Lila faces pirates, tigers and the terrifying Fire-Fiend on her perilous quest to find out what the three gifts really mean.

This new opera is a vivid re-telling of the award-winning children's novel by author Philip Pullman, with a libretto by Glyn Maxwell. David Bruce's music, bursting with colour and energy, sparkles with humour and musical fireworks of its own and is brought to life by magical puppetry.

Discover this gripping tale of friendship, determination and adventure that will be an explosive theatrical experience for all the family.
