Wilhelmina, Wallis, and Winston the Wombats are ready for their very first concert at Wolf Trap! The stage! The instruments! The maestro! But what is the audience supposed to do? With help from Ranger Nat, these three wombat friends learn how much fun music-making can be when they open their ears to listen. This interactive mini-musical is a perfect way to introduce children to the concert experience.
In partnership with Wolf Trap Education, WTO commissions a brand new mini-opera for young fans. It will have its premiere in May 2017 as the featured performance of Wolf Trap Institute Field Trip Performance and will return on July 19 & 20 as part of the 2017 Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods series. Listen, Wilhelmina!
will be double cast with current and former Wolf Trap Opera Studio Artists to highlight the 10th
anniversary of the Studio Artist program.
