Best field trip ever? (We think so.)

Kids experience the magic of opera with an interactive performance written just for them on an exciting trip to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion (or a theater near your school).

The Marriage of Figueroa
The clever residents of the fictional Aquas Frescas Mission need to convince their selfish governor to change his ways. A few sneaky tricks, a disguise or two and a special performance of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro are just the thing to (melodiously) show the governor that stealing doesn’t pay. Written by Eli Villanueva and LeRoy Villanueva (and Mozart, of course).
