A Sensory-Friendly Performance

Tri-Cities Opera welcomes you to a rainforest filled with bright animal characters and puppets aplenty! Papagayo is a story of celebrating differences and working together. When the hungry Moon Dog threatens their beloved moon, Papagayo helps to save the day and encourage the night creatures to see him in a new light!

Tri-Cities Opera’s talented vocalists sing stories to life! Named as a nod to Binghamton’s famous carousels, Opera-Go-Round performs for as many as 20,000 students annually, bringing great music to the next generation of listeners!

This is a 45-minute Sensory-Friendly performance for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders or any sensory or social cognitive disorders.

Adjustments to the production include:

  • – house lights dimmed (but not off)
    – no strobes or flashing lights
    – consistent sound volume
    – explanation of what will be seen and heard – narrators in the story
    – quiet area in the venue (Mandeville Hall)
    – fidgets welcome
    – audience encouraged to talk and react
    – ability to leave your seats
    – If you need to use a specific electronic device, such as an iPad, to help with your enjoyment of the show, please inform the ushers as you enter the theatre.
