This is an opportunity to win tickets to take your child to the New York City Opera! Chabrier’s legendary opera, La Belle Époque, meets Broadway razzle-dazzle in Mark Lamos’s production of this rare operatic gem of “L’Etoile.” The stylish staging, inspired by Toulouse-Lautrec, brings his famous can-can girls to life with the effervescent choreography of Seán Curran.
On April 3rd, the New York City Opera is offering an abridged 60-minute performance at 1:30pm sung in French with English dialogue and a pre-performance workshop with City Opera General Manager and Artistic Director George Steel. There will also be a free pre-show concert by the New York City Opera Children’s Chorus and the InterSchool Orchestras of New York at noon.
The show will take place at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center (at 63rd Street and Columbus Avenue). Tickets for this special family performance range from $6-$50 per ticket and can be purchased at the box office, online at nycopera.com, or by calling CenterCharge at 212-721-6500.
