The Midwest Institute of Opera presents a double bill of Ravel’s The Bewitched Child & Candey’s Sweets by Kate (World Premiere).
Ravel’s The Bewitched Child
Come and meet the little boy who is sent to his room for not doing his homework. Once in his room, he falls asleep and is transported to a magical world where the objects in his room can talk, storybook characters from his books come to life and where the plants and animals from his yard have a score to settle with him. The cast of characters includes: Princess Elsa (Frozen), Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty), a group of mystical dancing fairies and a headstrong little boy with some lessons to learn.
The opera will be in English with English supertitles. This opera will be presented first and is appropriate for all ages.
