Opera for the Young performs with students

On January 31, the educational touring company Opera for the Young visited KCD to perform a colorful, kid-friendly version of Dvořák’s opera Rusalka: a Mermaid’s Tale. The story incorporates many elements from “The Little Mermaid,” so the plot was familiar to most of the audience.
Two groups of students took the stage with the performers to help bring the opera to life. Fourth grade music students performed in the morning while fifth grade chorus students performed in the afternoon.

These shows were a great way to introduce young people to opera. We’re grateful to the KCD Fine Arts Guild for making this experience possible!
