Opera for Families

Opera for Families is a very popular series. It is a real bargain and encourages younger people to come to performances. Every adult purchasing a ticket is entitled to apply for THREE FREE tickets for children and young people under the age of 19.

This season we have Puccini's La Bohème, a moving, not very long opera, about young artists in Paris, a painter, musician and poet, who lead a seemingly care free life, although they are very short of money. They are not very lucky in love and, it has a very sad ending...

Engelbert Humperdinck's fairy tale opera Hänsel und Gretel takes us into a dark and bitterly cold forest, where the witch is waiting. It is not exactly the same as Grimm's story but is magical for grown ups and children alike.

Verdi's Simon Boccanegra is probably more suitable for older children: after twenty five years Simon Boccanegra, the Doge of Genova, is finally reunited with his long lost daughter Amelia. She had been brought up by his political enemies. One of them, in the never ending struggle for power between the plebeians and aristocracy, succeeds in poisoning him. Before he dies he names Amelia's intended husband as his successor.
