About ‘There’s A Sea in My Bedroom’

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.’

Sydney Opera House and the Australian Chamber Orchestra proudly present the world premiere of this beautifully reimagined story by award-winning author Margaret Wild.

Weaving together captivating storytelling with a newly composed score performed by ACO Collective, There’s a Sea in My Bedroom is an immersive introduction to live music, capturing the magic of a child’s fantasy world.
