Jackson-Keller welcomes opera performance

On Tuesday, January 8, the UTSA Lyric Opera Theatre performed for students at Jackson-Keller Elementary School. The San Antonio Opera Guild commissioned "Navarro, A Children's Opera," based on a story of Jose Antonio Navarro, a Tejano born in San Antonio.

This program introduces children to "live" opera and included 16 fifth graders as the villagers and 11 first graders as animals performing with the UTSA cast.

The students appeared mesmerized and grew excited at the parts of the show when their peers took to the stage.
