This touring operatic version of THE BREMEN TOWN MUSICIANS introduces the audience to music by opera composers Offenbach, Rossini, Donizetti, Sullivan and Verdi. Dorabella the cat, Barcarolle the dog, Eddie Pensier the rooster, and General Boom the donkey have been chased away from their farms as they have outgrown their usefulness. General Boom wants to form a band for the town of Bremen with the outcast farm animals as musicians. But sneaky pirates steal General Boom’s drum. It doesn’t take long for all the characters, including the pirates, to realize that in order to be members of the band, they must consider the feelings of others. Performed by the Opera Memphis Artists-in-Residence quartet.
