Join Our Performance of “Springtime For Haman”!
This will be our eleventh year of doing family opera. By an “opera” we mean a story told through song. All of our productions are original, in English, and fun for both kids and adults to attend and to participate in. Our first opera was “Space Opera”, with lyrics and music by David Bass, which tells the story of the original Star Wars movie, now called Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. It was first performed in 1999, and then again in 2000, and most recently in 2005.
This year we are doing David Bass’s Springtime For Haman, which we originally performed in 2004. This is my favorite of all the operas we’ve ever done. The Haman story is a great plot; there are funny parts and poignant parts and suspenseful parts; there are all kinds of musical styles.
