The sun, the moon, the stars: It's a celestial evening on Saturday, March 20 when St. Petersburg Opera joins forces with the Science Center of Pinellas for a family fun-filled night of music, movies, and telescope viewing.
The SPO singers, including Bryce Westervelt, Martha Lopez, Jean Collins, Amber Blair, and a women's chorus, will be singing opera, popular music, and a choral arrangement of part of Gustav Holst's symphonic masterpiece "The Planets". The program includes the Queen of the Night's aria from Mozart's The Magic Flute, Dvorak's Song to the Moon, and popular favorites like "When You Wish Upon a Star" and "I've Got the Sun in the Morning and the Moon at Night." The planetarium will be showing "Moon Dreams and a Dipper Full of Stars", the observatory will be focusing on Saturn in opposition, and two movies will be screened: "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and "Clone Wars: Ambush and Malevolence".
Doors open at 5:45 p.m. and the SPO performance will begin at 6:30 p.m.. The movies begin at 8 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. and the planetarium and observatory are open throughout the evening. Admission is only $4 per person. Pizza, snacks, and drinks will be available for purchase until 9:00 p.m. Movies are shown outside in the courtyard, so bring blankets and lawn chairs. (Movies will be shown indoors if the weather is inclement.)
