Opera Saratoga’s “Opera to Go” Presents “The Ugly Duckling” in March

Opera Saratoga’s “Opera to Go” production of

THE UGLY DUCKLING — a Children’s Opera

SCHENECTADY –  Children and families of all ages are invited when Opera Saratoga’s  “Opera to Go” artists perform a children’s opera, The Ugly Duckling, at the Schenectady Civic Playhouse, 12 So. Church Street, Schenectady, on Saturday, March 3, at 2:30 p.m.

Opera Saratoga‘s production of The Ugly Duckling, a whimsical retelling of Hans Christian Andersen?s beloved fairy tale with an original score by composer Andrew Duncan, allows children to experience the thrill of opera – up close and personal – through a story that encourages young people to accept differences in other people.

The Ugly Duckling doesn’t fit in with the other ducklings because she looks and sounds different than they do. But when the Ugly Duckling saves the other ducklings from the Big Bad Wolf after learning about his tricks, the others learn to love the Ugly Duckling for her intelligence and bravery, and begin to truly appreciate her for who she is.

The short, fifty-minute opera for young audiences of all ages is free of charge, open to the public, and no reservations required.  This performance has been underwritten by Schenectady Civic Players’ Gwen E. Fraser Fund to give back to the community and excite young people on the magic of the arts.. Join us after the performance in the Green Room, meet the cast and enjoy complimentary refreshments.
