Join us for public performances of our 2020 touring production, Earth to Kenzie. This new one-act opera charms with innovative and approachable tunes, while the memorable characters showcase the story’s themes of empathy and finding strength despite adversity. The fully staged and costumed opera is performed with professional singers and live piano accompaniment.
Kenzie is a fifth grader with a vivid imagination and a taste for adventure. But when her home is threatened, sending her to a family shelter with her mother, her world is thrown into a newfound state of uncertainty. Faced with unwelcome questions at school, Kenzie yearns to disappear into her favorite video game—a world where the possibilities are endless and her only concern is wrangling space-kittens—but her asthma reminds her that life isn’t all starships and spacesuits. To find her home, Kenzie first has to face her fears—and realize that she’s not alone after all.
