Our 2023-2024 school tour features the abridged version of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance. This opera tells the story of Frederic, who was accidentally apprenticed to a group of kind-hearted but bumbling pirates when he was a child. Now that he’s grown up, he wants to leave the pirate life behind. As Frederic ventures out into the world, he meets the lovely Mabel and her family. There are lots of funny misunderstandings, catchy songs, and a heartwarming message about doing what’s right.

Education Engagement Program
In an effort to introduce our younger generations to the world of opera, for the past few years Opera Idaho has toured our local schools with a program geared towards students in grades K-6. The program started with Opera in a Box, an introduction to opera created by local soprano Tiffany Calás. Since then, we’ve upgraded to abridged operas rewritten for our target audience. We have toured the Treasure Valley and beyond with Humperdinck’s Hansel & Gretel, Mozart’s The Magic Flute, Massenet’s Cinderella, Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love, and more.
