- Dan Rest/Lyric Opera
- Marlis Petersen, Ildebrando D’Arcangelo
Some of the scariest opera moments ever might be coming up Sunday, when Lyric Opera invites the kiddies in for Popcorn & Pasquale, a 70-minute “opera adventure” designed to introduce five- to 12-year-olds to the art form, which they can then begin to enjoy right along with their great-grandparents.
This adaptation of Donizetti’s Don Pasquale will be hosted by actor Ross Lehman and will feature the stars of Lyric’s current production of that work, including Ildebrando D’Arcangelo as the foolish old man and Marlis Petersen as his too-young-to-be-true bride. And it’s priced to be family-friendly: kids’ tickets are $10 to $20; adults $20 to $40.
The scary part is the popcorn.
