Opera Kansas

Opera Kansas Puts on Performances Thanks to Artist Grant

The Arts Council exists to advance and promote arts and culture in the Wichita community, and one of the ways we do that is through our Artist Grants. This year, the Arts Council gave a grant to Opera Kansas for their Final Friday Performances.

Opera Kansas is a 501c3 oganization that presents engaging, accessible and educational productions that give young performers a venue to learn their craft. Through the Arts Council Artist Grant, Opera Kansas was able to put on five different Final Friday shows this year.

In May, Opera Kansas opened their dress rehearsal of Offenbach’s The Island of Tulipantan to the public. In this performance, the Duke of the Island of Tulipatan has an heir, or does he? His daughter who has been raised as a boy falls for Alexis, the daughter of The Duke’s Field Marshall. To prevent their only child from being drafted into the army, the Field Marshall’s wife has raised their son as a girl. The comedy begins when boy meets girl then girl meets boy and the confusion starts. In the end, all is revealed.

In June, they presented La Serva Padrona at the Garvey Kiva Center. Uberto, an elderly bachelor, is angry and impatient with his maidservant, Serpina, because she has not brought him his chocolate today. Serpina has become so arrogant that she thinks she is the mistress of the household. After some trickery, Uberto realizes he truly loves Serpina. They marry and she becomes the actual mistress of the house.

In July, Opera Kansas presented a free concert of American Song.

In August, Opera Kansas put on portions of Kirk Mechem’s opera John Brown at the Sedgwick County Historical Museum.

And finally, in September, they put on Opera Kansas Constitution Day School Educational Initiative. The program included three historical characters- Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and George Washington- who presented different aspects of history, civics, literature and music from 1776 to 1787.

The Arts Council gives out several Artist Grants a year. It’s time to start thinking about grants for 2016. To apply for an Artist Grant, fill out this application. View all the rules here.

Steampunk Day

Do something different this weekend … discover Steampunk!

Steampunk Day
10 a.m-5 p.m., this Saturday, May 30
Admission Rates l Location

Steampunk Day returns to Cowtown for the fifth year in a row to give visitors a one-of-a-kind Victorian science fiction experience straight out of a Jules Verne or H.G. Wells novel. Activities for the entire family are scheduled all day. Download the schedule of events here.

This year’s featured act is Carnival Epsilon, a madcap group of sword swallowers, fire eaters and other sundry performers from Tulsa, Okla .

Steampunk is a technically advanced, alternate history where steam power is widely used and anything can exist – airplanes to flying ships, computers to time machines – as long as they’re mechanically made with gears and cogs. Throughout the day, Steampunk fans will bring the genre to life through costuming and displays/activities that are reminiscent of turn-of-the century Barnum & Bailey carnivals.

Visitors may join in the fun and wear their own Steampunk attire, but it’s not a requirement. The day is all about families having fun and immersing themselves in an alternate history that couldn’t come alive at a better location than Cowtown.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

 

Summer Fun for Kids

Cowtown is offering many activities this summer that turn “city kids” into “farm kids.” Your children will have such a great time with friends playing 1870s games, tending to a farm and pretending to be cowboys/Victorian girls that they will forget they are learning about history.

Tuesday Time Travelers (1st and 3rd Tuesdays, June through August) are open to any child! You have your choice of a morning program, 9:30-11:30 a.m., or an afternoon program, 1:00-3:00 p.m. Registration is $4. Sign up by calling 316-350-3317 or complete the online form.

Victorian Games and Amusements
Dates: June 2 and/or July 21
Victorian kids found ways to have fun without computers and electricity, and your child can, too. We’ll introduce them to different toys and games that will be more fun than they ever imagined.

Chores and Games on the Farm
Dates: June 16 and/or August 4
It’s true that farm kids worked hard to help the family. When the work was done, though, they didn’t forget about having fun. Our Tuesday Time Travelers will balance hard work and play to see if they have what it takes to be farm kids.

Hunting and Herding
Dates: July 7 and/or August 18
Hunters and cowboys had special skills that helped them live on the prairie. We’ll share their secrets with our Tuesday Time Travelers to see if they are ready for prairie life.

If you are looking for summer programs for groups of 14-25 children, Cowtown offers two-hour programs from 10:00 a.m.-noon or 1:00-3:00 p.m., Tuesday through Friday. For questions and date availability, call 316-350-3317.
