The Playground King provides an engaging introduction to how words and music work together to tell a story. Written by Sarah Squire, the opera is a story about four friends going to the playground. When Max decides that he wants to be the king of the playground, his friends team up to prove that a game is always more fun when everyone can play. Featuring music by Verdi, Bizet, Offenbach, Strauss, and Sullivan. 

The opera will be performed by a quartet of Opera Memphis’ most talented local singers – the same people you see on our stage! Opera Memphis will provide a study guide.
