Focusing on family-centric entertainment, Telluride's Michael D. Palm Theatre is a major player in the town's cultural economy.
Friday night, March 13, will be a lucky night for opera fans, when the Palm features The New York Metropolitan Opera's production of "Madama Butterfly," part of a special series, The Met: Live in HD! Japanese-themed taste treats by Capella's executive chef, Kenny Gilbert are part of the gala evening for adults.
The weekend continues with music – or rather, a musical – but targets a very different demographic.
Saturday, March 14, the Palm presents "Rainbow Fish," a musical for grades K-2 – or simply the young at heart.
With her lovely coloring and shimmering scales, the Rainbow Fish, is used to being the most beautiful fish in the ocean. When other fish ask her for some silver scales, she refuses: why sacrifice the one thing that makes her so unique? Will some good advice from the wise old Octopus persuade the Rainbow Fish to share her gifts with others? ArtPower has turned Marcus Pfister's bestselling book (1992) into a touching musical with a message for kids.
