THE UGLY DUCKLING
In a world where the default forms of entertainment for children are primarily television, video games and the Internet, Opera Saratoga’s Opera-to-Go program provides youth with an all-too-rare opportunity to experience the visceral thrill of the live performing arts, up close and personal!
Opera Saratoga’s production of The Ugly Duckling is a whimsical retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved fairy tale, with an original score by composer Andrew Duncan. Our Opera-to-Go productions allow your 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.
This is a FREE performance and no reservations are required.
Please join us after the performance in the Green Room and meet the cast and enjoy some complimentary refreshments.
