Join us for Opera Saratoga’s Opera to Go Education Program, featuring the music of Offenbach, Rossini, Donizetti, and Verdi, John Davies has adapted the beloved Brothers Grimm Folk tale into delightful children’s opera. The donkey, General Boom, seeks to form a band for the town of Bremen using the outcast farm animals as musicians. It doesn’t take long for them to discover that they have to consider each other’s feelings before they can make music. But, can the four very different creatures band together before pirates steal their instruments?
Through this adaptation of the classic Brothers Grimm Fairy Tale, students will be exposed to a rich variety of operatic music while exploring the important themes of diversity and tolerance. Acceptance of others and the value of cooperation are themes that are interwoven throughout this year’s Opera-to-Go performance. Appropriate for Pre-K to Grades 6.
