Gilbert and Sullivan in Rocket City explores the famous G&S operas in today’s world by creating a production in and about Huntsville. This show combines some of G&S’s best-known pieces such as Three Little Maids, The Matter Trio, and Poor Wandr’ing One with brand new, clever dialogue by G&S lover and expert, Jaie Deschene. Tailor-made for Encore Opera Huntsville, the three little maids transform into three little engineering nerds from UAH. The nerds wander through Rocket City building robots, spaceships, and, of course, looking for love. Hilarity ensues.

The Bremen Traveling Musicians
Encore Opera Huntsville is dedicated to community engagement. We are pleased to announce our current traveling show.
The Bremen Town Musicians, presented by Encore Opera Huntsville, is an operatic version of The Town Musicians of Bremen written for children. This somewhat silly production includes the music by famous opera composers such as J. Offenbach, G. Rossini, G. Donizetti, A. Sullivan and G. Verdi. This lighthearted production introduces students to opera in a way that is both enjoyable and inspiring. Working together as a team, a group of animals overcome difficult circumstances. The newly formed Bremen Town Musicians celebrate the idea that friendship, cooperation, and respect for others is far better than facing problems alone.
The first performance will be in partnership with Opera on the Mountain: Learning through the Arts at Burritt on the Mountain.
May 6 -- 10:00 am - 11:30 am
