Little Red Riding Hood

Estrella

This delightful music, set to the classic fairy tale, is a perfect vehicle to introduce children to the enchanting world of opera. They will also learn to listen to their elders, do their homework, and not speak to strange wolves! Authentic zarzuela (Spanish opera) music with an original story that emphasizes the importance of learning how to read … even for a singing and dancing “star.” Performed bilingually!

Wade in the Water

The powerful communication of African-American spirituals and their connection to our country’s rich cultural heritage is presented through a story portraying Harriet Tubman helping a slave escape to freedom. A moving experience!

Alice in Wonderland

The Treasure of California

This charming opera, written by Robert Chauls based on the Lewis Carroll classic, is filled with familiar characters and delightful melodies! Not to be missed! A story of the “Forty-niners” in gold country California told through the beautiful music of Giacomo Puccini and our own heritage folk music. Positively golden!
