Sher Rill Ng’s picture-book Our Little Inventor (Allen & Unwin) has inspired a performance by the West Australian Opera, for shows premiering in October 2022!
Telling the story of Nell, a young girl from the countryside who creates a machine to fix the pollution that is choking the big city.
Despite her excitement at showing off her invention, the people in charge do not share her enthusiasm to save their environment.
This is a tale for people of all ages to share together, incorporating gentle humour that touches upon themes of climate change, resilience, perseverance, and the importance of family and friends.
Adapted by composer and co-librettist, Emma Jayakumar
