TUTANKHAMUN’S SHOES, a new interactive children’s opera by ROBIN NORTON-HALE, 21 October – 2 December, English Touring Opera

Take your family on an adventure to Ancient Egypt and the Roaring Twenties in ETO’s interactive children’s opera, Tutankhamun’s Shoes written by new ETO General Director ROBIN NORTON-HALE and composed by Rosabella Gregory

We are taken on the journey by Queen Pharaoh Nefertiti, now an ever-living cat.  She will lead us whirling through time between Tutankhamun’s lonely and gruelling childhood in Ancient Egypt, and 1920s England where Nefertiti has chosen Lady Carnarvon as her person!  See how Howard Carter discovered the tomb, how Tutankhamun was betrayed by his Uncle Ay and wonder how in all those museums with that gold, Tutankhamun’s story was never ever told…

Tutankhamun’s Shoes will tour to theatres, museums and schools around the country from October. Join Tutankhamun himself, and other surprising characters along the way, and learn all about the ancient world, archaeology, mummification and more!
