There was something strange happening in the valley where Catrin lived. When she looked out of the window at night, she felt as if something was out there on the dark mountain, moving softly, watching. Wild Cat is a mystery story set in Wales. A strange creature is haunting the mountains – its shivery howl can be heard at night. Catrin can hear it, and soon the new English boy who has come to her school can hear it too. They set off on an exciting adventure to find out what it is. Wild Cat is loosely based on my children’s opera of the same name, which was commissioned by Welsh National Opera and performed throughout England and Wales. You can read about it on my Using music page.
