Don’t miss this opportunity to bring your kids to the Opera and experience the joy of live performance in a fun setting.
Figaro, Figaro, Fiiiiiigaro!!
Barber by day, matchmaker by night, Figaro puts his charm to work as he helps Count Almaviva woo the beautiful Rosina. She’s such a catch that her greedy guardian Bartolo keeps her under lock and key with the intent of marrying her himself. Crazy antics abound and even Berta the maid gets involved. But, no challenge is too great for Figaro’s madcap schemes! Filled with some of opera most famous tunes, this is a comedy not to miss!
Performed by Opera Colorado’s Young Artists, Family Day at the Opera features the professional production of The Barber of Seville that Opera Colorado takes directly into schools and community venues across the state of Colorado.
Space is limited with 150 seats, 50 standing room and space in front of the chairs for kids to sit on the floor.
Register today for this fantastic event that
will entertain the entire family.
