Rockford's Rock Opera is an original ecological musical story for children and adults which addresses the most serious environmental issues in a uniquely entertaining and yet thoughtful manner. And it's proving a huge hit around the world. Scripted by BBC comedian Steve Punt, and with music by Sweetapple, it tells the story of the Island of Infinity - home to all the world's extinct creatures.
Rockford's Rock Opera is an amazing adventure in sound for adults and children. Part One of the story (six chapters: 52 minutes) is free! It features narration, read along text, characters, sound effects and music and is available as a free mp3 download and an audio stream.
