The Bremen Town Musicians
By Dean Burry
Touring: February 18 – March 13, 2020
Based on a popular fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, a group of outcast farm animals, fed up with their mistreatment by humans, set out together to the town of Bremen to begin new lives as musicians. Along the way they must use their combined strengths to find their place and a way to live in harmony with a world that doesn’t understand them.
Calgary Opera’s School Tour
Each year, Calgary Opera’s Emerging Artists bring the magic of opera to schools across Southern Alberta. These fun, fully-staged productions are crafted especially for young viewers and provide students with a deeper understanding of music, operatic singing, storytelling and the traditions of opera. Each performance is accompanied by an educator’s study guide to help integrate opera into the classroom curriculum and a post-show audience discussion to deepen the students’ engagement.
Opera school tours provide many young people with their first performing arts experience and reach thousands of children from diverse economic and cultural backgrounds who might not otherwise get the opportunity to see a live performance.
