“LA, LA, LA,
I’M NOT LISTENING!”
With great pleasure we present an opera that is for people of all ages who love gruesome things!
Coraline is a young girl whose life has been uprooted. As she wanders alone through her new creaky house, she tries to get the attention of her work-at-home parents to no avail. One day she discovers a mysterious door, through which she sets out on a terrifying adventure that tests the limits of human bravery.
