Clever, Enchanting, Intelligent, Funny, Cute

See it if You like opera and want to expose your children to a world of opera they can have fun with. Silly and fun, with a heartwarming message.

Don't see it if You don't like opera, you don't like minimalist set (none) or puppets. You don't like watching kids have fun in a relaxed environment.

October 8th, 2016
For a previous production

"An engaging storyteller, a gifted soprano, and a natural with children, Melanie Gall brings her warmth, talent, and stage presence to 'Opera Mouse,' a delightful solo show that she wrote and performs...At about a half-hour running time, 'Opera Mouse' is a great length for a child’s attention span. It’s quick, cute, and to the point, as it entertains and educates. Even if you’re not a kid, this show is a real charmer."

For a previous production

"The idea of producing a show about opera for children seems an odd choice, but Gall pulls it off with, well, gall. She is a very talented singer and skilfully blends snippets from famous pieces together with a puppet mouse who enjoys ear massages. Added dynamism could perhaps be found with an additional performer and an extra 10-15 minutes of performance, but what we have already is very good...'Opera Mouse' is a very enjoyable half hour."

For a previous production

"Gall's determined to demystify the genre which she emphatically does through what is a nicely conceived and enthusiastically delivered introduction to opera through the eyes of Tilly, a glove puppet mouse...It’s a simple premise...Gall does this with enthusiasm and real warmth, connecting immediately with the three tots in the front row...It’s a first-class introduction to a genre that needs to work much harder at capturing the young–and keeping them."

"A delightful way to spend a morning. Children giggled and sang along, and there wasn’t a face in the audience that didn’t have a smile on it – this is a show for children that the grownups will enjoy too. Melanie Gall gives a confident, professional and, above all, entertaining performance...‘Opera Mouse’ is a fun tale about following your dreams and supporting your loved ones as they follow theirs. Fantastic fun, and a fantastic way to introduce your little ones to opera."
