Pinocchio (adapted by John Davies)

Fast-moving, colorful, and comical, this one-hour opera in English adapted from Carlo Collodi’s timeless tale includes captivating scenes and songs that highlight the opera’s message about the importance of family, friendship, and telling the truth. Featuring music by Mozart, Donizetti, Offenbach, Verdi, and more – Pinocchio is the perfect introduction to opera for the young and the young at heart!

EDUCATION IS KEY

Each year, Pinellas County Schools bus hundreds of third-graders – many experiencing opera for the first time – to Opera Central for special performances of Pinocchio. At St. Pete Opera, we believe that introducing young people to our unique form of musical storytelling both entertains and stimulates creative curiosity and plants seeds that will grow the next generation of opera and music lovers.
