Opera for Kids
The Enchanted Tail is an educational performance platform that exposes children to opera in a fun and engaging way. The 50-minute outreach program for kids features two lovable characters in an original story set to traditional opera repertoire.
Our team is dedicated to the enhancing the lives of young audiences through classical music education and theater.
Our mission is to educate and build a new generation of opera and classical music lovers using fun engaging characters, traditional theater and new technology to revive a classic art form.
Once upon a time, a happy woodsman was singing through the forest. The Witch of the Woods, upset with being woken up, turned him into a Fox so that he could no longer sing!
While the sad Fox was sulking around the forest, he met a beautiful Princess who was collecting items from the forest to make a magic brew. The Princess was also under a spell from the witch... that every time that she sang... she fell asleep! Fortunately, she found a recipe for a magic brew that would cure her sleeping spell.
The Fox discovered that he could sing when he put on the Princess’s crown. He could only do this when she fell asleep! After shooing away the sly Fox, upset that he was trying to steal her crown, the Princess later realized that she needed a Fox’s tail as the last ingredient to finish her magic brew!
The two danced around each other in a hilarious, interactive original fairytale. In the end, they ended up working together to cure both of their spells and they rule the forest as King and Queen.
