Footage from the April 2023 event in the Kennedy Center Eisenhower Theater
Donâ€™t miss this opera-tunity to laugh, cry, and learn new ways to sing your heart out.
Join hosts Kennedy Center Artistic Advisor RenÃ©e Fleming and inaugural Education Artist-in-Residence Mo Willems for a family-friendly event exploring our strongest emotions through one of the worldâ€™s most dramatic genresâ€¦opera!
Together with the Washington National Opera Cafritz Young Artists, Mo and RenÃ©e present famous arias as youâ€™ve never heard them before, bursting with Mo-ified lyrics to explore the range of human emotions in a way audiences new and old can appreciate and enjoy.
Feel the joy of playing with 10,000 puppies through the music of Verdi, the despair of not having ice cream through Leoncavallo, and the anger and frustration of not being able to ride a bike through Mozart. Andâ€”as a special bonus for the eveningâ€”enjoy a world premiere performance of the new WNO commission, Donâ€™t Let the Pigeon Sing Up Late!, composed by Kennedy Center Composer-in-Residence Carlos Simon and featuring The Pigeonâ€™s dramatic operatic debut.
Music directed and conducted by David Hanlon
