Event description

Description

firebringers

Boulder Opera presents a musically compelling and visually stimulating chamber opera for children that 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 last one is the world premiere of a new scene, “Iwarame the Caiman,”from the Yanomami-Sanema Tribes in Venezuela.

Appropriate for K-5 audiences and families

Sung in English with instrumental quartet

Performance time: 35 minutes

WORKSHOP!

Stay after the show and let your children help the singers create a new fire myth in this 30-minute opera improvisation workshop!

After the show, performers will work with children in groups to talk about elements of opera, working together to create a character and a story line. Then, the performers will improvise a new fire myth opera in front of the audience!

Appropriate for ages 6 and up!

Free to attend, registration required
