The first time a Royal Opera House production transfers to the West End this Christmas.

Closed 1 Feb 2014

In The Wind In The Willows, the adventures of four woodland friends are retold through dance, song, music and puppetry. From a dusty old attic a wonderful tale unfolds. The serenity of the river bank is rocked by a speeding car, a galloping caravan, a racing train and criminal deeds cooked up in the depths of the Wild Wood.

The escapades of the reckless Toad and his long-suffering friends Ratty, Mole and Badger are brought to life in a production that has charmed audiences of all ages. Drawing inspiration from the music of Edwardian composer George Butterworth, the action is set to a score by Martin Ward.

Directed and chorepgraphed by world-renowed dancer Will Tuckett, it is narrated by the former Poet Laureate Sir Andrew Motion, and its elegant and ingenious puppetry is provided by none other than the man behind the War Horse creations, Toby Olie.
