Two children playing in an attic make a wonderful discovery — an old trunk that belonged to their grandparents. And it's filled with costumes, props, opera albums and an old Victrola! So what happens when the kids start to play the old recordings? Magic — that's what! Scenes from beloved operas suddenly come to life!
60 minutes of fun and music for kids ages 5-10
Featuring members of the Ryan Opera Center plus the Lyric Opera Orchestra
