Premiering just after the Chinese New Year in January 2012, The Dragons Are Singing Tonight is a new musical based on the well-loved book of dragon poems by US Children's Poet Laureate Jack Prelutsky. Composer Laurie MacGregor brings the poems to life in a score of sixteen songs, while Markell Kiefer (TigerLion Arts) directs actors Isabella Dawis (StarTribune's "Outstanding Youth Performer" 2004, 2005), Tyson Forbes (TigerLion Arts), Elise Langer, and Maxwell Chonk Thao in the story of an ordinary boy, a magical girl, and a nasty, nasty dragon.
Thirty singing boys from the Minnesota Boychoir, three dazzling aerialists from Circus Juventas, twelve top-notch musicians, and countless puppets both giant and small create a wonderful winged world of dragons.
The musical tale inspires us with humor, beauty, and the simple message to believe.
