Grand Opera: The Magic Flute

I love this time of year, there are so many opportunities for fun field trips. We went to see a production of the Magic Flute put on by our local Grand Opera.

They slightly tweaked the opera to make it child friendly. Instead of the opera highlighting enlightenment, as in the original; this production highlighted green living. Which is somewhat ironic, since it was sponsored by Exxon Mobile.

While the girls found the opera beautiful and funny, John's favorite part was running away from the opera down the awesomely huge hill. He's a boy, I am content with him just being willing to sit through it... most of the time.

No trip to the outdoor theater is complete without a ride on the train through the park!!
