Here are some music excerpts!

What makes The Enchanted Tail so unique and fun is that the music is all sourced from famous operas across the centuries.  In fact, that makes this an amazing educational outreach program for the kids (and adults)!  Here are some samples with piano that we recorded to give you an idea of the beautiful and funny new lyrics.  Kids will be learning about opera without really knowing it!  This makes the program excellent for educational platforms and grants! 

Excerpt 1 I LOVE TO SING 

(Set to the music of Toreador from Bizet’s Carmen)

Our opera begins with a strong Woodsman walking through the Enchanted Forest.  He is singing very loudly about how much he loves to sing!  The woodsman invites everyone to sing along with a “Tra la la la” and clap their hands to the rhythm for part of his song.
