Fort Worth Opera presents Stone Soup
Stone Soup presents an age-old tale and gives it a Texas twist, as a hungry, penniless, 13-year-old girl named Sally arrives at the steps of a local General Store in Blessing, Texas during the Great Depression, and teaches the townspeople the value of sharing and working together.
The performance on November 7 is reserved for families of the Tarrant Area Food Bank and community service organizations. Families can watch the live performance of Stone Soup and then receive food donations from FWO’s huge cauldron, offering children an important opportunity to witness how their community has come together to support them, just like in the story.
The performance on November 8 is open to the general public with a suggested food pantry donation of four kid-friendly, non-perishable food items and a suggested ticket price of “pay what you can.” Families can watch the charming opera together and then place their food donations in the cauldron as a kind gesture to help other families in need across North Texas.
Both performances will take place in the parking lot at First Saint John Cathedral.
