Give them a chance and kids love opera. Really. Capitol City Opera stages performances for as many as 20,000 students at dozens of schools every year. The shows include tyke-friendly entertainment such as Hansel and Gretel and Green Eggs and Ham. Woven amid the songs and colorful costumes are lessons about self-acceptance, responsibility, and history.
