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 a charity, run for the benefit of everyone. Our Park, Palace and spectacular events have been enriching lives since 1863, but the coronavirus pandemic has hit us hard. To be blunt, we are looking at a £1m shortfall this year and the same again next year. We know this time has been hard on many people but, if you can afford it, your support will help us get through this crisis.
