Earth to Kenzie: An Opera for Young Audiences
October 12, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Mark your calendar for the new opera “Earth to Kenzie,” written by Frances Pollock and Jessica Murphy Moo and presented by the Virginia Opera. Featuring a cast of four singers with piano accompaniment, this family offering is specifically programmed to expose young audiences ages 7-12 to storytelling through song.
How far can your imagination take you? Meet Kenzie, a fifth grader with homework, asthma, and a big imagination. After having to move into a family shelter, Kenzie finds refuge in the world of video games, and through imaginary space adventures Kenzie dares to go farther than ever before. Come see if she finds the confidence to make friends, succeed in the classroom, and find her way home!
This is a free outdoor performance. Run time is 45 minutes.
