Family Program
A Very Special Opportunity!
Celebrate Presidents’ Day at the Opera
Monday, February 20
11-11:45 a.m., Multipurpose Room
Register all children and adults attending the Michigan Opera Theatre’s presentation of the familiar Grimm fairy tale, The Pied Piper of Hamelin, a delightful musical adaptation with music and libretto by the dean of children’s opera, Seymour Barab. The piper is hired by the mayor to rid the town of its rats. He does what he’s asked but is denied the payment promised him; in revenge, he lures all of Hamelin’s children out of town until the mayor “pays the piper.” After the piper is paid the children are returned home. This story allows children to learn the consequences of breaking promises. It also gives your child a chance to volunteer as a non-speaking actor! Confirmation numbers required at the door.
