Opera comes to Cumberland Elementary

On March 9, students at Cumberland Elementary School had the opportunity to see a performance of The Three Little Pigs, with music by W.A. Mozart and words and story adaptation by John Davies. The presentation was brought to Cumberland by the Virginia Opera, as part of the In-School Touring program. “This timeless classic was produced in full costume and was fully staged, complete with scenery and props,” school officials said in a press release. “In addition to providing cultural enrichment for students, the performance supported a number of Virginia Standards of Learning. Students had an opportunity to interact with the performers.”
