Event description

Description

firebringers

Partly commissioned by the Boulder Opera, this musically compelling and visually stimulating chamber opera for children takes us on a journey around the world, exploring fire myths of three different cultures. Young audience members will meet a singing rainbow crow, the god of thunder, and a moon-chief, only to name a few! The first scene, “Rainbow Crow,” comes from the Lenapé Indians of North America, the second is the story of Prometheus from ancient Greek mythology, and the final fire myth, “Murilé and the Moon-Chief,” comes from the Chagga of Kenya and Tanzania.

Appropriate for K-5 audiences and families

Sung in English with instrumental quartet

Performance time: 35 minutes
