Grades Pre-K – 4th; Family

OPERA-GO-ROUND, Tri-Cities Opera’s Touring Educational Program, is celebrating 45 years of bringing live musical performances to schools throughout New York and Pennsylvania. Annually, Opera-Go-Round performs for as many as 20,000 students. Our mission is simple: to bring great music to the newest generation of listeners! This year, our children’s opera is Pinocchio, a vibrant retelling of the classic story set to the music of Mozart, Donizetti, Offenbach, and Pergolesi, with a brand new scenic design by AmarA.

This imaginative version of the classic story by Carlo Collodi provides a perfect introduction to opera for little listeners. John Davies’ 40-minute adaptation features well known characters Pinocchio, Geppetto, Fox & Cat, and adds operatic zest in the form of sinister puppeteer, Dr. Dulcamara and Olympia, the mechanical girl caught in his clutches. Imparted by means of captivating scenes and songs, the opera’s message about the importance of family, friendship, and telling the truth shines through… like the Blue Fairy! The shorter staging is ideal for elementary ages. The presentation is framed by a brief introduction to the show and opera audience participation and a question & answer session afterward, in which the children get to interact directly with the performers.

Music Director: Eric Petterson  |  Choreographer: Jackilyn Yamialkowski

PERFORMANCES: Friday, January 24 at 7pm; Saturday, January 25 at 7pm; Sunday, January 26 at 2pm

If you thought you knew the story of ‘The Princess and The Pea,’ you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken’s love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

 

Event Seating is General Admission, First-Come, First-Served, Held in
the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Theatre of the Scranton Cultural Center.
