Here's a sneak peek at Dora's aria from "The Three Feathers."
"The Three Feathers" is a new one-act children’s opera commissioned from composer Lori Laitman by the Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech, which will celebrate its world premiere at the Moss Arts Center. Based on a Grimm’s fairytale and brilliantly retold by librettist Dana Gioia, "The Three Feathers" creates a mysterious world inhabited by a king, his three princess daughters, and courtiers; and the fantastical underworld kingdom of the Frog Prince and his chorus of rats, bats, and frogs. The story will carry audiences of all ages on a journey through song and spectacle. Recommended for ages five years and older.
