On Site Opera’s inaugural production, The Tale of the Silly Baby Mouse, returns for Take Your Child to the Library Day at Greenwich Library, sponsored by the Friends of the Greenwich Library! With bold, large-scale puppets and a live chamber ensemble, this production is perfect for audiences of all ages! It serves as a wonderful introduction to opera for new audiences, as well as a chance for more experienced opera-goers to hear a charming, but rarely-performed, Shostakovich gem.
Running time: Approximately 30 minutes (includes the opera, and Intro to Opera talk, and Q&A)
