2:00 PM Performance, 3:00 PM Family Fiesta
El Museo del Barrio, 1230 Fifth Avenue
Don’t miss Montsalvatge’s operatic take on the classic story of a mangy feline with magical talents. See the amazing Bunraku puppetry that turns a fairy tale into an afternoon of “tuneful,” “magical,” “exquisite,” and eye-opening opera.
60 minutes. Sung in English.
A Gotham Chamber Opera and Tectonic Theater Project production.
Co-produced by El Museo del Barrio and Works & Process at the Guggenheim.
Immediately following the performance (3:00 – 4:30 PM)
A festive reception of sandwiches, dessert and beverages in the cafe of El Museo del Barrio.
- Meet the singers and puppets from the show.
- Have your photo taken with the cast.
- Prizes for the most creative costume for those who wish to dress in character – Come dressed as the Princess, the Prince, the Ogre, or El gato himself!
