Kids experience the magic of opera with an interactive performance written just for them on an exciting trip to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

Figaro’s American Adventure is a children’s opera weaving together Rossini’s Barber of Seville with the American Revolution.  It is performed on a mini stage with a 3 or 4 piece “orchestra” on the balcony outside the main theatre at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. In this intimate setting the children, sitting on pillows or chairs, can almost touch the singers. The theme of this opera is perseverance.

 There will be a meeting before the opera so students can learn about the opera and its historical background, also, to understand the rules for attending the opera. Date/time TBA.

 In Tudor England, Queen Elizabeth I rules (literally). Ignoring advice from the court, she declines to charge her lover with treason, but he’s not making it easy for her. Behind her formidable public persona hides a fragile heart that aches to reconnect with a suitor whose loyalties are uncertain. If ever there was a diva role, this is it—careening from outbursts of rage to heartbroken laments—and glamorous Spanish soprano Davinia Rodríguez has the vocal and dramatic goods to deliver a knock-out performance.

 Plácido Domingo portrays a wronged husband caught up in Devereux’s web of deceit, with Ramón Vargas as the scoundrel at the center of all the trouble.

 When he was 18, Michael Rubel bought 2.5 acres of a citrus orchard in Glendora, CA. Therein he quickly set to fulfilling his childhood dream of owning and living in a real castle. Over 26 years, and with the aid of thousands of volunteers, Rubel Castle, sometimes called Rubelia, stands in the otherwise sleepy Californian suburb.

Though built largely with concrete and stone, the structure also contains a bottle house tucked inside the castle keep, bedsprings, bicycle and motorcycle parts, scrap metal, and anything else that Rubel and his friends found useful. There is a courtyard, drawbridge, clock tower, retired citrus packing house, faux graveyard, dungeons, printing press room, Santa Fe Railroad caboose, and blacksmith area all as part of the property. Shortly before his death in 2007, Rubel gifted the castle to the Glendora Historical Society. In October of 2013, the Rubel Castle Historic District was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Wear sturdy comfortable shoes, please no flip flops or sandals.
