Opera Tales Returning to Fourth District Libraries

Supervisor Don Knabe announced that the highly-acclaimed Opera Tales program will soon be returning to Fourth District County Libraries. Opera Tales is a LA Opera program that introduces children and families to the world of opera at local libraries. Supervisor Knabe established the partnership between the LA Opera and the County of Los Angeles Public Library, and provided funding to bring the free family performances to libraries in the Fourth District.

This year, German Opera Tales features five professional opera singers who perform musical moments from such German opera stories as Wagner’s Das Rheingold, Mozart’s Abduction from the Seraglio, and Humperdinck’s Hansel und Gretel in celebration of LA Opera’s Ring cycle and the Ring Festival LA.
