Opera set for children's show in Chester, Bolton

CHESTERTOWN - Youth of the region have the opportunity to experience top-quality opera this summer while enjoying a fanciful story, as Seagle Music Colony will be presenting free performances of the children's opera, Jack and the Beanstalk.

Reviewers have noted this presentation is a hilarious adaptation of the familiar fairy tale that combines the traditional story with music from Gounod's opera Faust.

Jack and the Beanstalk will air first at the Schroon Lake Boathouse Theatre in two shows, 10 a.m. and 11:30 am July 10, followed by performances in Bolton Landing on July 16, Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek on July 20, the Ticonderoga Festival Tent on July 21, and Chestertown on July 24.

This latter performance, at 10:30 a.m. in the Town of Chester Municipal Center on Main St., is underwritten by a grant from the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council.
