There's a Sea in My Bedroom

Australian Chamber Orchestra

David is frightened of the sea. He does not like it at all, not one bit. But one day he finds a conch shell at the beach and takes it home – and he hears the sea trapped inside.

“Come out, sea, come out,” he says softly. “I won’t hurt you.”

Based on the beloved children’s book by award-winning author Margaret Wild, adapted for the stage by Tim McGarry, There’s a Sea in My Bedroom is an immersive and theatrical introduction to live classical music, capturing the magic of a child’s fantasy world.

Returning to the stage following a sell-out Sydney Opera House premiere season in 2019, this exquisite performance weaves together captivating storytelling with a specially commissioned score from Australian composer Paul Stanhope, performed live by an ACO string quintet.
