LA Opera thinks you're never too young to enjoy the classics. With that in mind, we are proud to present two Saturday morning, hour-long, interactive performances. Delight in familiar arias and wander through enchanting tales of adventure in both original works and beloved favorites adapted for children.
Fun and creative workshops for children before each performance add to the excitement and prepare the audience with art and music-making activities.
FIGARO'S AMERICAN ADVENTURE
JANUARY 31, 2015
Figaro's American Adventure is a wildly imaginative and engaging celebration of Rossini’s opera, The Barber of Seville, composed and directed by Eli Villanueva with a libretto by LeRoy Villanueva. Children are transported to colonial America where, with his band of sneaky barbers and colonial compatriots, Figaro leads us on a delightful musical goose chase. Ultimately, he outsmarts his adversary and love triumphs as he helps his friend the Count win the hand of his beloved Rosina.
