Bubbles the Zebrafish & The No .8 Bus is an opera for children, exploring the effects and solutions to plastic pollution in the Pacific Ocean. 


It is almost bedtime, Olympia and Orleans decide to take the magic No. 8 bus to their favourite ice cream shop on Sorbet Road.


However, they end up at the wrong Sorbet Road, one deep in the Pacific Ocean. This begins their adventure with Bubbles the Zebrafish, Scarlett The Jellyfish Princess, Goggles the Sea Turtle, and a very helpful audience. 


A storm of plastic, a jellyfish birthday, and a couple of adventurous children accompany this magical score which combines classical music and jazz to create a truly enchanting and immersive performance.


Family friendly.
