Listen, Wilhelmina!

Join us at the Lyric Opera Production Arts Center for Listen, Wilhelmina!, a zany interactive children’s opera exploring a kaleidoscope of styles and all the different ways there are to listen. Three wombats have come to their first concert. One of them, Wilhelmina, is beside herself with excitement. She can’t stop clapping, singing, or even dancing when she’s supposed to be quiet (much to the horror of the other Wombats, Ranger Nat, and the very famous conductor). Appropriate for all ages, Listen, Wilhelmina! is specially designed for children ages 3—8. Stick around after the show for a host of fun (and educational) activities!

All performances will be in The Michael and Ginger Frost Production Arts Building.
