Fort Bend County Libraries presents Strega Nona Children's Opera
Fort Bend County Libraries will present a performance by Houston Grand Opera’s “Opera to Go!” of Strega Nona. The performances will be held at the Fort Bend County Libraries' Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library at 1 pm and the Fort Bend County Libraries - University Branch Library at 4 pm.
Based on a children’s book by Tomi DePaola, this family-friendly light opera, sung entirely in English, is about a woman named Strega Nona who has a magical touch with food. Her helper, Big Anthony, is tempted to try his own hand at magic when Strega Nona leaves town. Can he resist the temptation? This story is a great way to learn about the importance of paying attention and respecting other people’s property.
