Never too young for opera
The Opera for the Young was back at St. Croix Central Elementary School on Thursday, March 25.
This year, four actors and one accompanist performed "Rusalka, A Mermaid's Tale," featuring a score adapted from Antonin Dvorak by Jeffrey Sykes, and a libretto adapted by Opera for the Young's artistic director, Diane Garton Edie. Along with the professionals, 16 SCC fourth-graders were called to the stage. This is the ninth year Opera for the Young, based in Madison, has been at SCC.
