Can You Hear Colour?

A kaleidoscopic opera for children.

Imagine a world where every colour has a sound and every colour makes you sing.

Meet Girl, who discovers a world of musical wonder in her very own wardrobe. Captivated and curious, Girl sets out to hear all the colours of the rainbow, uncovering vibrant new worlds of melody and mischief along the way.

Can You Hear Colour? is an operatic visual poem created by internationally renowned Patch Theatre Company, that promises to delight 4 – 8 year old children and their families. Weaving together the child’s love of colour and music, this sensory adventure celebrates the unique way we each see, hear and share our world.
