Returning to Harlem PS 129 for the second year, Opera on Tap Jr. will present two performances (at 9am and 11:15am) of a new Playground Opera based on Rossini’s Cinderella, produced in collaboration with three of PS 129’s Third grade classes.
The Playground Operas is a school day residency program that immerses students in the production and performance of an opera. With the guidance of professionals working in the field today, students explore the operatic experience from the first conception of an opera’s production to the exciting culmination of its performance. The stage? Their own schoolyard playground.
Putting the ‘country’ into the Italian countryside, this production of La Cenerentola will feature a new score arranged by Jeff Hudgins for banjo, fiddle, accordian and bass.
Space is limited. Please RSVP.
