Tank, Bubbles and Dorsel and three best friends who just happen to be fish, and they’re about to set out on a remarkable journey of discovery. And it all starts with a treasure map.

    About the Little White House

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt built the Little White House in 1932 while governor of New York, prior to being inaugurated as president in 1933. He first came to Warm Springs in 1924 hoping to find a cure for the infantile paralysis (polio) that had struck him in 1921. Swimming in the 88-degree, buoyant spring waters brought him no miracle cure, but it did bring improvement. During FDR’s presidency and the Great Depression, he developed many New Deal Programs (such as the Rural Electrification Administration) based upon his experiences in this small town.

    $10 per Student

    Cultures collide when the young Japanese geisha Butterfly marries B.F. Pinkerton, a dashing American naval officer. Rejected by her family, she attempts to forge a new life and identity, with tragic results. Butterfly’s very human story is for anyone who has ever felt the excitement of infatuation, the longing for a distant loved one, the sting of familial disapproval, the ache of rejection, and the courage to make impossible choices.

    Opera combines music, drama, and dance with visual art and powerful stagecraft to tell stories with a unique visceral impact. There is simply nothing quite like hearing and seeing live opera, and Puccini’s Madama Butterfly is one of opera’s the most beloved stories. This 75-minute reduction of the full-length opera features the principal singers, chorus and orchestra of The Atlanta Opera. Students will enjoy the visual spectacle of this beautiful new production, which features gorgeous sets, costumes, and projections to accompany some of the most glorious music ever written.

     

    This event is for high school students only, the content is most appropriate for 9th-12th graders.
