Sydney's Inner West
An immersive introduction to live music, capturing the magic of a child's fantasy world.
In the Utzon Room
David is frightened of the sea. He does not like it at all, not one bit. But one day he finds a conch shell at the beach and takes it home – and he hears the sea trapped inside.
'Come out, sea, come out,' he says softly. 'I won't hurt you.’
