World Premier: James Thurber’s classic children’s tale comes to life!

About this event

The 13 Clocks image

Mission Opera presents ‘The 13 Clocks’ by David Avshalomov, a World Premiere opera in English, based on a popular children’s fantasy novel by James Thurber.

FREE admission for children age 10 and under, accompanied by an adult.

‘The 13 Clocks’ is a delightful fairy tale filled with magic and absurdity, imagination and escapism. In this fantasy, a mysterious prince, Zorn of Zorna, must complete a seemingly impossible task to rescue the Princess Saralinda from the cold-hearted Duke who stole her when she was a baby. This never-before-performed work features live orchestra (piano, flutes, and percussion) as well as an amazing cast of LA-based singers, including Gabriel Manro, Chris Hunter, Ben Lowe, Tiffany Ho, Phil Meyer, Megan Gillespie, and more!

Directed by Mission Opera Artistic Director, Dr. Joshua Wentz, featuring animation and multimedia design by Aaron Ball of Command VirFormance. “This show is a wonderful treat for families with children of all ages,” says Ball, who is designing video for the giant 60 foot LED screen on the stage. “Even though it’s a little dark, it truly is a classic fairy-tale for the ages.” Performance is 2 hours and 10 minutes, including a 15 minute intermission.

Mission Opera will continue to operate COVID protocols based on all guidelines and mandates from the State of California, the County of Los Angeles, and the Wm. S. Hart School District. If any changes occur, CDC protocols at the time of the show will be strictly followed.
