If you are looking for family-friendly entertainment and culture, look no further! This season, OperaLancaster presents four shows, ranging from the spine-tingling Halloween fun to heart-warming holiday wonder. OperaLancaster’s 62nd season features Opera Macabre, Amahl and the Night Visitors and Hansel & Gretel. The company is also introducing its first opera for children only, Opera Tales: The Three Little Pigs.
Hansel + Gretel
A visual spectacle based on the Grimm Brother’s fairy tale and set in a world with hints of steampunk. Think Jules Verne and H.G. Wells! Featuring top singers and dancers including Met Opera veteran and Elizabethtown native Robert Brubaker as the witch. Directed by Lancaster theatre veteran Patricia Kautter.

Opera Tales: The Three Little Pigs
New to the 2013/14 season, OperaLancaster presents Opera Tales: The Three Little Pigs, an opera for elementary school-aged children with the moral “use your library.” This one-act opera uses the music of Mozart to teach children that if you are going to build a strong house, you need to do your research! We will be performing at several local Elementary Schools and on select Saturday mornings in March and April 2014, Trust Performing Arts Center.
Studies have overwhelmingly shown many benefits to a well-rounded music education! Benefits include higher test scores, higher attendance & graduation rates, improved social skills, improved reading & math aptitude as well as many other areas of childhood development (or here, here or here!!!).
