Opera-Go-Round

With bright sets and imaginative costumes, Tri-Cities Opera’s talented vocalists sing stories to life!

Named as a nod to Binghamton’s famous carousels, Opera-Go-Round has been delivering the excitement of a fully-staged children’s opera to schools throughout New York State and northern Pennsylvania for nearly 50 years. Students engage with our singers and pianist to explore this unique art form and take away valuable social-emotional learning lessons.

2021–2022 Opera-Go-Round Programming
Stone Soup

Dates Offered: November–May (Virtual); May (In-Person)

Grade Level: Recommended for K–5th

Stone Soup pairs composer Joe Illick and librettist Mark Campbell for an operatic retelling of the classic European folk tale. Their reimagining will transport audiences to Blessing, Texas for a rocking-chair view of the comings and goings at Max’s General store. From the opera’s opening notes representing a young girl’s stomach rumblings, through the whimsically collaborative creation of the title meal, to its uplifting ending, Stone Soup imparts a timeless message: we all have something to contribute and sharing makes things better for everyone.

Virtual Program: Includes 35-minute performance video, online study guide, and behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast/creative team. Select your preferred 2-week access period. 

In-Person Program: Scheduled first-come, first-served. Dates available in May 2022.
