Best Bits

Britten Sinfonia's Max the Brave brings the world of Ed Vere’s beloved children’s picture book to life through music, live-illustration and audience interaction.

Max is a fearless kitten. Max is a brave kitten. Max is a kitten who chases mice. There's only one problem-Max doesn't know what a mouse looks like! 

  • Ed Vere’s vivid children’s book comes alive in this delightful piece of music theatre, with live music performed by Britten Sinfonia.
  • Join author and illustrator Ed Vere and Britten Sinfonia as they take you on an exciting and unexpected musical journey
  • The ‘purr-fect’ way to introduce the young and their families to classical music.
  • Featuring dynamic choreographed performances and storytelling
  • Youngsters will delight in Max's mistakes, while adults will love the subtle, tongue-in-cheek humor of this new children's classic.

Praise for the Book:

"A cat-and-mouse game to be laughed at and reread." -Kirkus

"Full of playful humor...enhanced by the humorous text, character expressions, and a not-scary monster to boot. VERDICT Highly recommended." School Library Journal

"Both the punchy text and illustrations command attention, and plenty of readers will get a kick out of feeling superior to Max" -Publishers Weekly
