Acclaim for Rockford’s Rock Opera
Despite the name, this isn’t not operatic music, or rock music either. It’s like nothing you’ve ever heard before...
The Guardian Newspaper compared Rockford’s Rock Opera to a 21st Century Peter and the Wolf, and children and adults all over the world tell us Rockford’s Rock Opera sounds like nothing else!

“Magical.” THE OBSERVER
“Wonderful musical entertainment for all ages.” THE WORLD WILDLIFE FUND (WWF)
What’s the Story About?
Far away in the Sea of Tranquillity is the Island of Infinity, home to the last one of every extinct species. Here, beneath a mystical swirling sky, live the world’s lost creatures. The creatures have a secret, but a boy called Moog and a dog called Rockford are the one ones who can deliver their message and save the world.
An Educational Ecological Musical!
Rockford’s Rock Opera is story about extinction backed by credible environmental organizations, but it’s also a tale of hope and happiness.
Created by Elaine and Matthew Sweetapple and written by BBC comedian, Steve Punt, Rockford's Rock Opera is supported by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). They said;
"Rockford's Rock Opera is a thought provoking and heart warming story that not only provides wonderful, musical entertainment for all ages, but also highlights environmental issues in an engaging way."
Rockford's Rock Opera is also recommended in education, in schools, by teachers for those learning English (including English as a foreign language students) and music, ‘green issues’ and for children learning about nature, ecology and extinction.
The story continues, Rockford’s Rock Opera Parts 2, 3 and 4 are available now from the App Store (making up the whole story).
What's New in Version 2.1.2
Further iOS 7 fixes, App Store links updated, added to Made for Kids category with Parental Gate support.
I love this App! & not surprisingly, so do my kids. It’s a great, cleverly written story, well told & brilliantly realised. In particular I love the characterisation & the songs - any one of which would happily sit between Sgt Pepper & Ogden’s Nut Flake in my psychedelia collection. Worth it for the boat ride alone! Tom
We all love this story so much - aged 5 to 49. A wonderful audio visual treat. So original, thought provoking and clever. Love the fact that there are no ads so safe to leave with the children - a lesson for others. Totally Recommended!
We all love this story. Got all four apps and in constant use!!! :-)
Even better on iPad. Keeps us all quiet and singing along!!!
