Opera Mouse

Melanie Gall Presents for Kids—Kids Venue: MTYP – Mainstage

I saw Opera Mouse a few years ago and loved it. Seeing it again, I forgot most everything that happened but it reminded me of exactly why I loved it, and I love it even more now. The show is fun, exciting and a load of laughs for the kids. Even as an adult, I had a great time engaging with the plot.

Then there’s the music, which is timeless—literally, since we’re talking about Puccini and Bizet. The aria from Carmen is one of the most recognisable pieces ever written and Puccini’s O Mio Babbino Caro is instantly familiar (Puccini is my favourite opera composer). People are instantly absorbed hearing these pieces.

Now let’s talk about Gall’s voice. I’ve seen many of her shows through the years and I love her singing. To date, I still haven’t heard her sing more than an aria here and there. I would love to see (hear) her perform a complete opera. Madama Butterfly? Turandot? C’mon Melanie! Do it!
