The Houston Grand Opera's Opera To Go Was a Great Success

Yesterday, The Houston Grand Opera came and visited us here at Northwest Library. We had over 80 people in attendance. They sang an opera written by Composer Enrique Gonzalez-Medina. How Nanita Learned to Make Flan was entertaining for all ages. It was a wonderful sight to see three year olds that just came from Toddler Storytime come and enjoy the artistic talents of local Opera Singers. The story was of a little girl named Nanita who made a magical pair of shoes that transport her far from her beloved father. While away, she learns to make the most delicious flan. With the help of a talking parrot and an old woman, she finds her way back and shares her new culinary skills with all at her first communion. What a wonderful tale for all! What true talents we have right here in Houston! Thank you, Opera to Go.
