Presented by Washington National Opera
Saturday, July 19th, 1:00 p.m.
Ages 6-12

This Saturday we're lucky to have a performance by the Washington National Opera. Their outreach division will present a program on the opera Madama Butterfly by Puccini, including performing selected songs from the show, learning about the Japanese Fan Dance, and an arts & crafts activity. Each child will also get a Madama Butterfly student guide explaining the opera and Japanese culture more in detail.

After the performance children are invited to stay to help the library plant a butterfly garden with Miss Tracy.

Please give us a call if you have any questions: 202-671-0265
