Children’s Opera Theatre from Fort Worth will be returning to Mambrino School Jan. 31, 2014 after the school received a grant for the fifth straight year. The program will be “The Ugly Duckling.” The opera is based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. Performances will be followed by question and answer sessions, which give students an opportunity to ask questions about opera, singing, costumes, sets, props and other interesting topics.
