Camerata Piccola introduces the great works of the opera repertory to children by marrying classic operas with familiar children’s stories. New Camerata Opera Co-Founder Stan Lacy adapted Peter Rabbit, pairing Beatrix Potter’s classic tale Peter Rabbit with Donizetti’s timeless opera L’elisir d’amore (The elixir of love). Kids and parents can laugh and be entertained by great music including famous arias such as “Una furtive lagrima” set to a child friendly libretto. This exposure enriches their lives in so many ways.
