Fort Bend County Libraries’ Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library will present a performance by Houston Grand Opera’s “Opera to Go!” of an original production, Cinderella in Spain, on Monday, November 19, beginning at 2:00 p.m., in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 8100 FM 359 South in Fulshear.
This family-friendly light opera, sung in English and Spanish, presents the traditional Cinderella fairy tale with a Hispanic twist. The king plans a fiesta to find a bride for his son, Prince Paulo, but havoc erupts when two stepsisters crash the party. Prince Paulo meets and falls in love with an unknown seniorita who loses a glass slipper in her rush to leave. Will he find his one true love once again?
One of the most popular works in the history of Opera to Go, this hilarious bilingual adaptation is recommended for children in grades 1 through 8. A free hand-stamp is required for admission, and will be available one hour prior to the performance.
The program is presented with the generous support of the Friends of the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library. Proceeds from the Friends of the Library book sales and annual membership dues help to underwrite the costs of special programming and various cultural events at the library.
The performance is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library at 281-633-4675 or the library system’s Communications Office at 281-633-4734.
