As part of its upcoming 2007/08 season, the Central Pennsylvania Youth Opera will join forces with the Little Theatre of Mechanicsburg to present the witty children’s opera “The Operatunists” at a special student groups performance on Friday, April 18th, 2008 at 1:00 p.m at the State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg. Mainstage performances are on Saturday, April 19th and Sunday, April 20th at 1:00 p.m.

“The Operatunists” is a backstage spoof of opera, with the familiar melodies of great composers Mozart, Verdi, Puccini, Wagner, Gounod, Bizet and Rossini set to special child friendly lyrics by the popular composing team of Michael and Jill Gallina. Featuring the 3 Sopranos, the Three Tenors, a large cast of comical opera characters, and guest appearances by the composers themselves, this is a grand introduction for children of all ages to the world of opera. Over 50 young talented singers and actors will appear in the production, which will also include sound and light special effects. The opera is 45 minutes in length, and special programs are provided to each student. Upon request, a synopsis of the opera and short biographies of the composers will be provided to better enjoy the production.

Last year, the Central Pennsylvania Youth Opera’s critically acclaimed production of the children’s Holocaust opera “Brundibar” was sold out by early December. If your school or homeschoolers association is interested in attending the student groups performance of “The Operatunists” on April 18th, would you kindly fill out and return the form below to us by November 22nd, 2007. The cost per ticket is $4 for both students and teachers/chaperones-payment is not due until March 1st, 2008.

The Central Pennsylvania Youth Opera is the only children’s opera company in the state of Pennsylvania to train young people ages 8-17 to perform quality children’s opera in mainstage productions and educational outreach programs to the community.
