Last Wednesday we took the kids to their very first opera, Cameron's too; The curse of Lao-Ling. It was short and and sweet and very cute.
It was the first time any of us had been to the Hawaii Theatre. A gem nestled in the heart of China-town; glowing with bright lights and immaculate tiled walls and gold trim. The audience was filled with children and they were encouraged to participate. Since the opera only had three people, (yep, 3) every performance they ask for six volunteers from the audience and they teach everyone the songs so we too can participate.
Marcus and Lohena loved it and I was very proud of Cameron for keeping an open mind.
I want to thank my daddy for making it a point to expose us as young children to the arts and wonderful world of music and theatre. I am so grateful that I have been able to experience some great and creative performances like, Fiddler on the roof, Phantom of the Opera, Honolulu Symphony, The Nutcracker, Lion King, front row James Taylor concerts and so much more; and I hope to do the same for my children. Next month we are going to see Wicked and I am so excited!
