Fort Bend County Libraries’ Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library will present a performance by Houston Grand Opera’s “Opera to Go!” of Strega Nona, on Monday, Nov. 25, beginning at 1 p.m., in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 8100 FM 359 South in Fulshear.
Based on a children’s book by Tomie DePaola, this family-friendly light opera, sung entirely in English, is about a woman named Strega Nona who has a magical touch with food.
Her helper, Big Anthony, is tempted to try his own hand at magic when Strega Nona leaves town. Can he resist the temptation?
This story is a great way to learn about the importance of paying attention and respecting other people’s property.
The program is presented with the generous support of the Friends of the Library organizations that support these branches.
A free hand-stamp, available starting one hour prior to the performance, is required for admission at the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library.
Since space is limited at the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library, children should be in grades 2 through 8 to attend.
The performance is free and open to the public.
