Postponed: Arts in the Parks - Mooch the Magnificent

This event has been canceled

Join us in the Large Studio for a performance of Mooch the Magnificent. Composed by Lauren Bernofsky with libretto by Scott Russell Sanders.  Mooch the Magnificent was commissioned by Reimagining Opera for Kids for 2012-2013 season. Lauren Bernofsky’s virtuosic and tuneful score was combined with a libretto by award-winning author Scott Russell Sanders. The libretto is based on his novel The Engineer of Beasts.  A recurring theme in many of Sanders’ literary works is love of nature, and his libretto for Mooch the Magnificent is no exception; perhaps the strongest message is the story is that nature is wondrous, magnificent, and, above all, something to be experienced and savoured.  The message is both timeless and timely. This 30 minute performance will be followed by a Q&A session.

Reimagining Opera for Kids is a non-profit community arts and education organization based in Bloomington, IN.  Learn more about this organization here.

Price: Free to the public. Site admission and tours are sold separately.
