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.

What’s Next?

The story continues, Rockford’s Rock Opera Parts 2, 3 and 4 are available now from Google Play(making up the whole story).

PLEASE NOTE. Like Part One, due to the rich audio visual content of this App the initial download will need to be made while connected to Wi-Fi or a computer. The content will then be fully downloaded and ready for enjoyment anywhere – in the car, on the train (no annoying glitches) and on holiday (no data roaming charges!). It’s quite a big file – but well worth the wait!

Rockford's Rock Opera 3

Sweetapple
Welcome to Rockford’s Rock Opera PART 3 – the penultimate installment in this award winning audiobook story for children and adults!

- NOW FOR Android, iPhone and iPad.

NOTE: YOU CAN DOWNLOAD PART 1 OF THIS AWARD WINNING MUSICAL STORY FREE in the App Store (over an hour of story, music, animation and pictures). PARTS TWO and FOUR ARE ALSO NOW AVAILABLE making up the whole story.

But, if you’re here to download Part 3 of the Rockford’s Rock Opera audiobook app, you’ll already know about this unique, ecological musical story so... welcome back!

If you're enjoying the story, please do post a review, tell your friends, and join us on facebook. You can visit our website too; www.RockfordsRockOpera.com where you’ll find loads more free stuff including free educational materials. We love to hear from you, so please do say ‘hi!’.

As before, due to the rich audio visual content in our story, Rockford’s Rock Opera Part 3 is QUITE A BIG FILE SO PLEASE USE WIFI when you’re downloading – but, as we’ve found, it’s so much better as it avoids any additional download fees. The audio visual story is a Universal app so it'll look great on iPhone, iPod Touch and on the iPad too. And, as we’ve said before, although we originally made the story for ages 5+, many younger children and young-at-heart adults love the story, animation and illustrations.

That’s it I think? We hope you enjoy the third part of what the Guardian newspaper's App Reviewer recently called;

“The best iPhone prog-rock educational eco-musical App!”

And, if you're still not sure, please take a look at the reviews for our Parts 1 and 2 Apps (many thanks to all of you who've posted – we REALLY appreciate it).

Thanks again for listening and do keep in touch.

Matthew, Elaine and Steve.
