Oscar Wilde’s charming short story, The Selfish Giant, has enchanted young readers since it was first published in 1888.

After a cantankerous Giant banishes children from playing in his garden, he experiences the chill of perpetual Winter. When children sneakily return, so does the beauty and joyfulness of Spring, teaching the Giant to open his heart generously in order to enjoy life’s riches.

This Green Room Award-winning adaptation comes from the creative genius of two of Victorian Opera’s former Developing Artists: composer Simon Bruckard (Cassandra) and librettist Emma Muir-Smith.

Following its sold-out debut season in 2019, The Selfish Giant returns to the stage with its wit and playfully eclectic musical style. A treat for the whole family!
