The Adventures Of PinocchioNEW!
January 2009
Nick will choreograph the American premiere of "THE ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO" for the Minnesota Opera.

This fantastical tale brings to life the wooden boy who wants to be good, but just can't stay out of trouble. Guided by the Blue Fairy, Pinocchio has lots to learn before he can discover the secret to becoming a real boy. Along the way he is tricked by the Fox and the Cat, squishes the well-meaning Cricket, has his lying nose pecked by woodpeckers, is captured in the Big Green Fisherman's net and is even turned into a performing donkey at a circus. Jonathan Dove's exhilarating music is paired with magical stagecraft and storybook scenery. This family opera is an American premiere, suitable for children who aren't afraid of the dark.
