Did you catch Opera for the Young on Wisconsin Public Radio’s “The Midday” last week? If not (or if you’d like to hear it again), we’ve added two special highlight videos from the feature to our “In the News” playlist on YouTube and the entire radio interview can be heard online in “The Midday” Archives. OFTY Artistic Director Diane Garton Edie and Norm discuss OFTY’s upcoming 2017-2018 school tour of Rusalka: A Mermaid’s Tale, an OFTY original adaptation based on Dvořák’s opera of the same name. Managing Director Saira Frank and pianist Vincent Fuh perform two of Rusalka’s dramatic moments from the show, then Vince describes some of the challenges OFTY faces (and embraces!) in adapting operas for children.
