Saskatoon Opera in Schools at LES

May 31, 2017

​In celebration of Canada's 150th birthday, Saskatoon Opera in Schools presented The Bremen Town Musicians May 16 for all Lanigan Elementary School students. The opera was adapted from the Grimm Brothers folk tale by Canada's most successful opera composer, Dean Burry. The 45 minute performance combined the arts of drama, dance, music and visual arts. The cast of five and the pianist did an outstanding job presenting the "story of four animals that are drawn together by adversity", but who "achieve their goal of a better life, through team-work and friendship." Students were very attentive and enthusiastic throughout the show and following the opera, they were eager to ask questions or give out compliments to the talented opera company.
