Pinocchio (adapted by John Davies)

Fun for the whole family! Fast-moving, colorful and funny, this one-hour retelling of the classic tale is sung in English and features music from Mozart, Offenbach, Verdi and Donizetti. It’s the perfect introduction to opera for young people, and adults love it too!

All performances at Opera Central


This year, in conjunction with Pinellas County Schools, more than 800 third graders will be bussed to Opera Central for special morning performances of Pinocchio. At St. Petersburg Opera, we believe that introducing young people to our unique form of musical storytelling entertains them while it stimulates their creative curiosity, and plants seeds that will grow the next generation of opera fans.
