Adapted from a Mexican folk tale, this enchanting production blends jazz and opera music, storytelling, and movement to allow audiences of all ages to share the secret of Prince Oso. When a Woodcutter meets a bear in the forest, to save his life, he gives the bear one of his own daughters to marry. Niña, his daughter, discovers a wonderful secret about the bear and sets off on a great adventure to unlock the secret forever. Celebrating 11 years, Primary Stages of the Yocum Institute for Arts Education and production partner Berks Opera Company invite you to enjoy this gift to the community; a beautiful production filled with color and magic.
