Show at 11am, Wiggles and Giggles at 10am

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.
