*Opera Saratoga's "Opera to Go" production of*

*"THE UGLY DUCKLING" -- a Children's Opera*

*SCHENECTADY* –  Children and families of all ages are invited when Opera
Saratoga’s  “ Opera to Go” artists perform a children’s opera, *The Ugly
Duckling,* at the Schenectady Civic Playhouse, 12 So. Church Street,
Schenectady, on Saturday, March 3, at 2:30 p.m.

             Opera Saratoga’s production of *The Ugly Duckling*, a
whimsical retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved fairy tale with an
original score by composer Andrew Duncan, allows children to experience the
thrill of opera - up close and personal - through a story that encourages
young people to accept differences in other people.

             The Ugly Duckling doesn’t fit in with the other ducklings
because she looks and sounds different than they do. But when the Ugly
Duckling saves the other ducklings from the Big Bad Wolf after learning
about his tricks, the others learn to love the Ugly Duckling for her
intelligence and bravery, and begin to truly appreciate her for who she is.

             The short, fifty-minute opera for young audiences of all ages
is free of charge, open to the public, and no reservations required.  This
performance has been underwritten by Schenectady Civic Players’ Gwen E.
Fraser Fund to give back to the community and excite young people on the
magic of the arts.. Join us after the performance in the Green Room, meet
the cast and enjoy complimentary refreshments.
