Tiger Who Came to Tea gets Sydney Opera House run
25 Sep 2014

Sydney Opera House is set to be home to a production based on classic picture book The Tiger Who Came To Tea this winter, with the family friendly show running December 10th to 29th at the iconic Australian venue.

People who take in this tiger-tastic experience will be able to see David Wood's musical take on Judith Kerr's story, in which Sophie and mum are visited by a tiger at tea time.

The same show has already been seen in London's West End, and tickets for its Sydney run are going on sale September 29th. If you don't feel like booking flights to Sydney just now, the show is also going to be in other UK and international destinations in the coming months.

Kerr's book first hit the shelves in 1968, and the recent stage adaptation has been nominated for an Olivier Award, one of the best known awards in the theatre world.

David Wood's past pieces for the theatre include adaptations of the Roald Dahl books The Witches, Fantastic Mr Fox and The BFG.

The press have praised The Tiger Who Came To Tea show, with The Times saying "this Tiger is the cat’s meow", and the Daily Mail calling it "a proper magic-and-mayhem show, full of silliness!"

The show will be presented in the Playhouse at the Opera House, with tickets priced between $30 and $49.

Meanwhile, on the subject of tea time… The Opera House is also gearing up to host chef Alice Waters later this year, for a session called Slow Food Values in a Fast Food World.

On November 12, in the Studio at the venue, Waters will be talking with Joanna Savill on the topic of sustainable food.

Ticket prices start at $45 and the event is part of the Ideas at the House strand.ADNFCR-408-ID-801750788-ADNFCR
