Children’s opera helps instill morals
EARLVILLE, N.Y. >> The Earlville Opera House will host a Theatre for Young Audiences production, presented by Tri-Cities Opera Go-Round, on Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 10 a.m.
“Goldie B. Locks and the Three Singing Bears” will bring fairy tale characters to life on the historic 1892 stage for students grades K-5 to enjoy. This arts education initiative serves to foster youth development through live theatrical performance and meets NYS Learning Standards for the Arts and English Language Arts.
Opera- Go-Round, TriCities Opera’s Touring Educational Program, is celebrating 44 years of bringing live musical performances to schools throughout New York and Pennsylvania. Annually, Opera- Go-Round performs for as many as 20,000 students. “Goldie B. Locks and the Three Singing Bears” is a retelling of the classic story set to the music of Mozart and Offenbach, with a brand new scenic design. It is an op- eratic version of the classic fairy tale featuring a modern-day Goldie with a love of bugs, a baby bear named Pee, who’s determined to earn his Detective Merit Badge as a Junior Smoky Scout, and plenty of kid-friendly humor. This John Davies creation delivers a message about owning up to your mistakes and confiding in the people you trust and treating others as you would like to be treated.
