Children's Opera: Monkey See, Monkey Do
Presented by: Opera NOVA

A one-act opera by award-winning Texas born composer, Roberto X. Rodriguez based on the classic folk tale “The Hat Seller and the Monkeys.” Perfect for family audiences featuring a musical and visual treat including audience participation and incorporation of the Spanish language. The combination of English and Spanish is ideal for the introduction of language study, and the exposure to the Mexican culture fits perfectly into any humanities curriculum. This unique, interactive bilingual children's opera featuring a live orchestra with professional musicians and professional opera singers from around the area is essentially education disguised as entertainment.
