Oscar winning composer Rachel Portman wrote an opera based on the beloved classic book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Hi Kids Commuters! All week long we're going to hear music from Rachel Portman's opera, "The Little Prince," based on the beloved classic book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

We'll meet characters from the story while listening to beautiful music from this contemporary novel.

We also have a special bonus for you. On Friday, May 14, Interlochen Arts Academy will be live-streaming their performance of the opera and the Kids Commute team is inviting you to an online watch party.

Text your email address to 231-237-7482 for details on how you can join the fun.

Friday night, you'll watch the Interlochen Live Stream at live.interlochen.org and we'll be on a Zoom call together!
