If you’ve got kids and want to introduce them to opera in a fun, participatory way, this Puccini & Popcorn event might be just the ticket.

The Opera Southwest Puccini & Popcorn event on Saturday February 23, 2013 at 2 pm is free to children and their parents, although you need to make reservations in advance. Opera Southwest runs the program at the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History and this session led by conductor Oliver Prezant will focus on ‘The Magic of the Operatic Voice’ in an entertaining and interactive program for kids. In addition to exploring this emotive form of human expression, they’ll serve refreshments to help inspire the muse!

Mr Cheap often sings his version of opera in the shower and boy do I wish he’d take a workshop. Unfortunately, he’s a little over the target age range for this event. No, I’m not going to sing a duet with him as that would only make the suffering worse.

Puccini and Popcorn runs from 2 – 4 pm on February 23. If you want to tune-up to opera, book your space by calling (505) 831-4221 or email a reservation as they make it very clear they need to know who’s coming, spaces are limited, and you can’t just arrive without notice.

Albuquerque Museum of Art and History is located at the corner of Mountain Road and 19th Street, in Albuquerque Old Town.
