February 5, 2016 – Jack & the Beanstalk (Florentine Opera)

Jack and the BeanstalkFee-fi-fo-fum! It’s the opera you can enjoy in your PJs! Children are encouraged to wear their pajamas and snuggle in for a fairytale of operatic proportions. Jack and the Beanstalk tells the classic tale of a young boy who sells the family cow to a mysterious stranger for a handful of magic beans. Presented by the Florentine Opera Company, hilarity and adventure ensue as the cast learns the importance of being kind to others.

Adapted and written by John Davies, this operatic version is based on scenes from the operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan. The opera is sung in English. The show is set to last about an hour, and seating is right on the auditorium stage. Children will have the opportunity ask the performers questions after the show and tour the set. The Florentine Opera Company is Wisconsin’s oldest fully professional performing arts organization and the sixth oldest opera company in the United States.
