SEAGLE FESTIVAL’S 2023 CHILDREN’S OPERA
Summer Tour: July 2023, In-School Tour: September 6 – October 6, 2023
For 2023, Seagle Festival is excited to once again have a touring children’s opera available for summer venues, and early-fall in-school performances. This year we are producing the charming children’s opera THE UGLY DUCKLING by composer Andrew Duncan, and librettist Steven Malone. The production is sung in English and appropriate for children pre-K to 6th grade.
WHO: Four of our talented 2023 Seagle Festival Emerging Artists and a pianist will perform the show live for your young audience members.
WHAT: The production of THE UGLY DUCKLING is approximately 35 minutes long and will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience. The story follows the traditional fairy-tale and emphasizes the acceptance of the differences in others. In-school bookings also include our professional developed TEACHER GUIDE designed to prepare students for the performance and enhance their experience.
WHEN: The summer production is available to venues from July 9-29, 2023. The in-school production is available for booking September 6 to October 6, 2023.
WHERE: Our troupe will travel to your school or venue and arrive approximately one hour prior to the performance to set up. The production requirements are minimal – just a space large enough for the show, and an enthusiastic audience are required. If you have a tuned piano available, we will use it, but also have an electronic piano available that travels with the production.
HOW: The summer booking fee is variable depending on the size of your venue – please call for deatails. The in-school booking fee is $450 per school – all inclusive. No funds are due at the time of booking, and most in-school performances can be reimbursed or paid through your BOCES Arts in Education program (WSWHE, FEH & CVES)
