Our 2016 production was Chincha-Chancha Cooroo or the WEAVER’S WEDDING. This remarkable family opera for audiences of all ages is based on a classic Bengali animal fable, with music by Bernard Hughes and libretto by William Radice. A wily Jackal arranges the marriage of a foolish, uneducated Weaver to the King's daughter ... but it is the Princess who has the last laugh! This entirely sung 70-minute show (plus intermission) is full of stunning sets, colorful costumes, and beautiful music and dance. Listen to our 2009 performance of Weaver's Wedding HERE.
