The much-loved adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s classic sees the adventures of reckless Toad and his long-suffering friends Ratty, Mole and Badger retold through dance, song, music and puppetry. It will run for eight weeks.
Alex Beard, Chief Executive Designate of the Royal Opera House said:
‘This is a hugely exciting development for us, seeing one of our much-loved productions transfer into the West End. The Wind in the Willows was the first small-scale Christmas production to be created for the then newly opened Linbury Studio Theatre, and has been so popular that we have brought it back into the repertory three times since those first performances. Will Tuckett’s production is a wonderful family show and we’re really pleased that more people will have the opportunity to see it just down the road from Covent Garden.’
