Delicious never-ending fun

Take one true blue Australian classic, add deliciously playful costumes with a measure of musical magic, mix in a generous helping of young talent and discover the perfect recipe for a delightful family opera.

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Norman Lindsay’s The Magic Pudding, Victorian Opera brings its much-loved adaptation back to the Melbourne stage, before hitting the road across regional Victoria.

Join Albert, the walking, talking, never-ending Pudding, and his friends–penguin Sam Sawnoff, sailor Bill Barnacle and koala Bunyip Bluegum–as we celebrate an Australian family favourite with this witty and adorable production.
