A galactic odyssey, based on a familiar science fiction tale of heroes and villains, robots and aliens, unlikely adventures, and supernatural nonsense.

Presented by an inter-generational cast in English with side titles.

Space Opera will be performed eight times at the Peabody School, 70 Rindge Avenue, Cambridge, MA (North Cambridge, between Porter Square and Arlington):

Parking is readily available on the streets surrounding the school. Cambridge will suspend permit parking restrictions during showtimes.

The minimum donation online is $5 to reserve a seat.

Space Opera was first performed as NCFO's premier production back in 1999.

This fifth incarnation has been updated and even includes some new music (come hear our spectacular a cappella droid quartets!)

Space Opera is about 2 hours long, plus a 20-minute intermission between the two acts.

With music direction by David Bass, stage direction by Kathy Lindsay, and choreography by Rachel Zimmerman, this unique piece is replete with stunning sets, colorful costumes, witty words, dazzling dance, and mellifluous music in sundry styles.

Our company of 150 cast and crew, drawn from throughout Greater Boston, are as young as 7 and as old as the hills.

Two excellent casts take turns in the spotlight.

Performances are in English, of course, with side-titles to ensure that you don't miss any of the very clever lyrics.

Snacks will be available for purchase at intermission; in addition, sandwiches will be available at the Sunday 5:30pm shows only.

T-shirts, CDs, and DVDs will also be available for purchase at intermission, as will Family Opera 'grams' to send congratulations to all of your friends in the cast and crew.

Come early to make sure you get a good seat!
