Kid-Friendly Opera Takes the Stage for DuPage Children's Museum’s Tiny Great Performances™ Season Closer
DuPage Children's Museum is proud to present a kid-friendly opera experience as its last Tiny Great Performance™ of the season. On Sunday, May 20 Chicago Opera Play House will perform Cinderhood at 2:00 p.m. The performance is free with Museum admission or membership.
While the word opera may evoke images of grand theaters and an adults-only night out, Chicago Opera Play House’s production of Cinderhood has set out to change all of that. Combining the classic stories of Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood, the presentation introduces children and their families to opera.
According to the organization’s mission statement, Chicago Opera Play House is dedicated to exposing and educating children to opera and musical theater through engaging and interactive performances. Each of the company’s 45-minute performances provides the opportunity for children and families to experience live theater with professional musicians.
The Tiny Great Performances™ series presents professional actors, dancers and performers in a family-friendly, intimate setting with the goal of promoting a lifelong love of arts in all children, sparking skills that inspire creativity and curiosity. All performances are free with Museum admission or membership.
The Tiny Great Performances™ programs are made possible in part by donations from the Joseph and Bessie Feinberg Foundation, the Illinois Arts Council, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Werth Family and the Farny R. Wurlitzer Foundation.
