About

Set against the fairytale backdrop of Hans Christian Andersen’s lighthearted tale about a vain emperor who gets taught a valuable lesson by his clever daughter, this charming operatic adaptation returns to the Kennedy Center for a limited time only! Hailed by the Washington Times as “the perfect choice for music-loving youngsters,” The Emperor’s New Clothes is a great introduction to opera for ages 7 and up with its soaring arias, beautiful duets, and lively quartets. Ric Averill’s libretto also adds a witty twist to Andersen’s timeless classic with a tender love story and a howlingly funny ending—in which the foolish king and his ridiculous subjects get their just desserts.

Recommended for ages 7 and up.
