From 12 December, the Linbury Studio Theatre will be taken over by a mischievous Toad and a mild-mannered Mole as Will Tuckett’s The Wind in the Willows returns to the Royal Opera House.

A mixture of song, dance,  poetry and puppetry, it is an exuberant and theatrical piece that brings the adventures of Kenneth Grahame’s classic to life on stage.

Watch the trailer:

The trailer was filmed a few Sundays ago as opera-goers enjoyed a performance of Wagner’s Siegfried. The Clore Studio was taken over for the day by The Wind in the Willows cast: the normally pristine floor was covered with an array of willow branches, leaves and wrapping paper, and the air was slightly heady with smoke.

Take a look at our backstage photos:


A Christmas favourite for children and adults alike, The Wind in the Willows will run from 12 December until 5 January.
