Children’s OPERA “La Maison du Vieux Léon”

Opera performance of March 12th at 12:30pm at the Franco Center in Lewiston. Below is Joëlle Morris, Artistic Director's, description of the show " La Maison du Vieux Lion is a witty and light opera about a group of school children who follow their beloved teacher on an exciting and surprising adventure together. Sung completely in French, this musical brings together music, French poetry, dance, acting and set design, as the students of l’Ecole Française du Maine created and painted all the sets for the show as well as rehearse their parts. It’s also been a wonderful opportunity for the entire school to participate together in school-wide collaboration, with our 5th and 6th graders helping the preschoolers and the 3rd and 4th graders helping the kindergartners."
