Our Little Inventor tells the story of Nell, a young girl from the countryside who creates a machine to fix the pollution that is choking the big city. Despite her excitement at showing off her invention, the people in charge do not share her enthusiasm to save their environment.
This is a tale for people of all ages to share together, incorporating gentle humour that touches upon themes of climate change, resilience, perseverance, and the importance of family and friends.
Composed by Emma Jayakumar and inspired by the book ‘Our Little Inventor’ by Sher Rill Ng, published by Allen and Unwin Publishers, 2019.
Sung in English with English surtitles.
West Australian Opera presents Our Little Inventor in association with AWESOME Festival, West Australian Young Voices and Western Australian Youth Orchestra.
