Mobile Opera’s Discover! School Tour program will present The Bremen Town Musicians, November 6-9, 2023 to K-5 students in area schools. In cooperation with the Mobile Public Library, two public performances will be held on November 10. 

Featuring the music of Offenbach, Rossini, Donizetti, and Verdi, John Davies has adapted the tale of Dorabella the Cat, Barcarolle the Dog, Eddie Pensier the Rooster, and General Boom the Donkey into a delightful children’s opera. General Boom seeks to form a band for the town of Bremen using the outcast farm animals as musicians. It doesn’t take long for them to discover that they have to consider each other’s feelings before they can make music, but can the four very different creatures band together before pirates steal all  their instruments?

The performance is approximately 30 minutes with a Q&A with the artists following, if time permits. This tour is free to area schools and the maximum number for students for one performance is 500.
