The Ugly Duckling

  • Saratoga Arts Center (in partnership with The Children’s Museum) 320 Broadway Saratoga Springs, NY, 12866 United States (map)

FREE PERFORMANCE!

Opera Saratoga’s new production of The Ugly Duckling is a whimsical retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved fairy tale, with an original score by composer Andrew Duncan. Our Opera-to-Go productions allow students to experience the thrill of opera - up close and personal - through a story that encourages young people to accept differences in other people. The Ugly Duckling doesn’t fit in with the other ducklings because she looks and sounds different than they do. But when the Ugly Duckling saves the other ducklings from the Big Bad Wolf after learning about his tricks, the others learn to love the Ugly Duckling for her intelligence and bravery, and begin to truly appreciate her for who she is.
