This April & May, Tri-Cities Opera’s Opera-Go-Round is hosting several live, outdoor performances of STONE SOUP for children & families throughout the tri-cities area. On May 21st, STONE SOUP will take place The Discovery Center’s Story Garden.
STONE SOUP pairs composer Joe Illick and librettist Mark Campbell for an operatic retelling of the classic European folk tale. Their reimagining will transport audiences to Blessing, Texas for a rocking-chair view of the comings and goings at Max’s General store. From the opera’s opening notes representing a young girl’s stomach rumblings, through the whimsically collaborative creation of the title meal, to its uplifting ending, Stone Soup imparts a timeless message: we all have something to contribute and sharing makes things better for everyone.
We will be collecting food donations on behalf of the Food Bank of the Sothern Tier at each performance.
