New York, NY: CAT: The
Opera Musical, an interactive, family-friendly performance, is coming to the Wildlife
Conservation Society’s Central Park Zoo at 2:00pm on Sunday, September 19.
CAT is an opera-musical about a
cat that becomes transfixed and transformed by the world of letters. Written by
author George Plimpton, composed by Kitty Brazelton, and directed by Grethe Barrett
Holb, the 45 minute opera engages the audience with singing and sound effects,
transforming the crowd into the show’s chorus and orchestra.
Full of humor and imagination,
this gentle tale set to uproarious music will inspire the young and the young
at heart to spread their wings and explore adventures in the world of letters.
