One of the great things about Ginger's 3rd grade teacher this year is that she's affiliated with our state's youth opera program. As a result, every year her class writes and performs an opera. Perfect for Ginger the music lover.
The kids wrote the entire opera and made the scenery, with just a bit of assistance from some specialists. The title of the opera was "The Video Game"-- it was about some kids who are playing a video game too much and get sucked into the game. They manage to escape in the end, but come to the conclusion that playing video games too much isn't a good idea. Ginger was one of the narrators.
I hate to say that I didn't get any pictures of the entire stage of performers and set-- I got stuck up front with only my telephoto lens. But, here's what I managed to capture.
I have to admit, I teared up a little. It was just so much better than I expected. Seriously, it was great, and what a fabulous experience for Ginger to have! Way to go, Ginger!
