Join us for a family-friendly afternoon of opera followed afternoon tea where the actors will mix and mingle with audience members, in the DF Cook Recital Hall.
The Opera RoadShow is an ensemble committed to arts education through outreach and engagement. Since 2003, they have traveled to schools in Atlantic Canada, changing stereotypes and introducing tens of thousands of children to the engaging art of live opera theatre. Opera RoadShow brings fully staged and costumed operas out of the concert hall and into local schools and creates an environment where young audience members experience opera through interactive performance and where young professional singers mature as performing artists. By making opera accessible to children in even the most remote areas of our province, they help them to see it as a thriving art form that incorporates a myriad of artistic and technical disciplines.
With the proceeds from this performance, we aim to contribute to the Opera RoadShow’s travel expenses.
Le Nez de la Sorciere: The Witch's Nose
What happens when a disgruntled Witch tangles with a fishing village? That’s where this opera begins as we are introduced to singing Cod, a Prince in disguise, and a world turned to ice. Here the storybook characters gather their courage and indignation and the Witch learns a valuable lesson in the power of inner beauty.
*This show has been commissioned specifically for children's audiences.
Opera Performance 2 – 3 p.m.
Followed by an afternoon tea party 3 – 4 p.m.
Cost: $5 per person / $20 for a family of five
