FREE performance!

An operatic version of the children’s literary classic, ‘Pinocchio’ by Carlo Collodi, based on music from operas by W.A. Mozart, G. Donizettie, J. Offenbach, and G.B. Pergolesi. Length: 45 minutes, performed in English.

Synopsis: Stepping into a new and unknown world, Pinocchio is hoodwinked by Wolf and Cat and persuaded to disobey his father by skipping school in order to meet Dr. Dulcamara, a loathsome puppeteer. Dulcamara detains Pinocchio with the intention of having him perform with his miraculous mechanical doll, Olympia. The puppet and doll become friends, and when Dulcamara breaks Olympia in a fit of rage, Pinocchio runs home to admit his disobedient behavior and ask his father’s forgiveness.

Accompanied by a policeman, Pinocchio and his dad lead the authorities to Wolf, Cat and Dulcamara, and the bad guys are run out of town. As Pinocchio resolves to always tell the truth and share his problems with trusted grownups, he and his father head home to repair Olympia and begin life anew as a family of three.
