Hawaii Opera Theatre’s Opera Express ingenious adaptation of Gilbert & Sullivan’s comic operetta will offer one public OHANA! Series performance at the Hawaii Theatre!

Every year the excellent Education staff at HOT streamline full-length operas into kid-friendly introductions to the world of classical opera.  This year they have chosen the witty vehicle Gilbert and Sullivan created to lampoon the English 19th century fascination with the Orient.  Their story is set in the fictional Japanese town of Titipu, with character names like Nanki-Poo, Pitti-Sing, Peep-Bo and Yum-Yum. The plot is as playful as the music that carries it along, and families will love the comic misadventures that result from disguise and mistaken identities.
