Mystery on the Docks

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

Dates Offered: September 2022 – May 2023

Grade Level: Recommended for K–5th

In the spirit of film noir and detective stories of the 40s and 50s, Edward Barnes’ Mystery on the Docks combines singing and comfort food with a dash of intrigue. When international opera star, Edwina Bombastina, goes missing, it’s up to short-order cook and opera superfan, Ralph, to whip up a plan to save her. But when Ralph runs out of ideas, will Edwina’s suggestion get them out of their jam? Tri-Cities Opera invites you to Pier 46 in Ratville for a story of blue-plate special friendship and reliance on your inner voice in times of trouble until things are shipshape again.

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.

In Person Program: Includes 35-minute performance and 15-minute question and answer session with the Opera-Go-Round team. Dates available in March and May.

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.
