Memory Boy – An Opera for Kids of All Ages

Memory BoyMemory Boy the opera is based on the novel by Will Weaver of the same name. It’s a post-apocalyptic story set in Minnesota. Post-apocalyptic novels are kind of a guilty pleasure for me. My 10-year-old daughter, who is my usual date for these kind of things doesn’t share that interest with me, so I decided to take my 6-year-old. He’s not as seasoned with theater as his sister, but he is drawn to more adventurous stories.

Memory boy is billed as an “opera for kids of all ages,” and he was not the only younger child there, but it would have been a better fit for the 10-year-old. Even though it was only an hour and sung in English, it was difficult for him to sit through it and difficult for him to remember he couldn’t talk in his regular voice. Although this is an excellent starter opera, I would still recommend it for slightly older than kindergarten. Probably 8 and up. Read More
