A co-production with Queensland Music Festival. Inspired by the original 1922 tale by Annie R. Rentoul and Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, this whimsical production will spark the imagination of our youngest audiences with a tale of love, hope, compassion and a touch of fairy magic. Soprano songstress Katie Noonan joins us for select performances, and along with Paul Boyd’s mesmerising choreography and Elena Kats-Chernin’s original score The Little Green Road to Fairyland will enchant audiences of all ages.
