This half term Maurice Sendak’s classic tale of imagination and escape gets a musical makeover in Oliver Knussen’s fantasy opera. With words by Maurice Sendak, this is the story of MAX, a boy in a wolf suit who escapes from the tedium of home life into a wild land populated by strange misfit creatures who recognise him as their King.
Featuring a first half of Ravel’s Mother Goose, this is a concert experience that will delight adults and children alike.
Whether you’re a family looking for something enchanting to do on a Saturday afternoon or a seasoned opera going pro, this is the show for you.
WILD THING fancy dress is encouraged and family discounts are available.

Alexandra Palace is run by a charity for the benefit of everyone. It’s loved by many people: as a historic landmark, ice rink, legendary gig venue, exhibition centre, theatre, park with panoramic views and more. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic our income has fallen catastrophically and our survival is at risk. Your support can help: as a charity, every £1 we receive is reinvested back into the organisation and will help us get back on our feet.
