DANNY & KAYE PLAYHOUSE THEATRE at Hunter College
East 68th Street btw Park Ave & Lexington Ave
“ITALIAN” is an interactive show designed to expose children and families to the beauty of the Italian language and culture.
A magical star coming from a far-away planet stops above a small Italian hill. It enters into an abandoned shelter that becomes a magical flying castle… The Fata’s story begins with her and her creatures’ desire to communicate using Italian words stemming from music, dance, images, and… many magical moments!
A cast of eight outstanding performers coming from COMPAGNIA DELLA RANCIA (PINOCCHIO-THE ITALIAN MUSICAL), MOMIX, THEATRE ON ICE and MAGMA DANCE COMPANY will guide the audience through an enchanted world. Great for K-5, but all ages are encouraged to experience the show.

Opera is one of Italy’s proudest achievements and an excellent Italian language learning tool. That is why IACE has teamed up with DiCapo Opera Theatre to carry out an IACE project called Tutti all’Opera.
Schools affiliated with IACE in the tri-state area are invited to attend these affordable and informational opera performances, which are abridged versions of the original opera, created specifically for students who are studying Italian, and are fun for all ages!
The General Director of DiCapo, Michael Capasso, will lead the students on an operatic adventure as he gives insightful explanations of the plot during intervals. Following each performance, students participate in a lively Q&A session with the actors!
