The Magic Pudding

Email Signatures.png

Composed by Calvin Bowman
Libretto by Anna Goldsworthy
Conducted by Fabian Russell
Directed by Cameron Menzies

Take one true-blue Australian classic, add deliciously playful costumes with a measure of musical magic, mix in a generous helping of young talent and discover the perfect recipe for a delightful family opera.

Celebrating the centenary of Norman Lindsay’s The Magic Pudding, Victorian Opera brings its much-loved adaptation back to the Melbourne stage, before hitting the road across regional Victoria, with a cast of brilliant emerging talent and local community choruses.

Join Albert, the walking, talking, never-ending Pudding, and his friends – penguin Sam Sawnoff, sailor Bill Barnacle and koala Bunyip Bluegum – as we celebrate an Australian family favourite with this witty and adorable production.
