"I love it the kids love the costumes and the spectacle. This is something the kids would never be able to see on their own. So i'm tickled we are about to come here free of cost", says Cinnamon Rowland.
For many of these kids, seeing Mozart's "The Magic Flute" was a new experience.
"It was amazing because for one I've never been to a real opera before and it was super exciting because of the acting and singing it was so surprising how well they did because of the acting and singing it actually surprised me really really much," said one student.
The kids weren't the only ones who experienced that rush of adrenaline.
"It's so much fun just having them here really brings a lot to the stage and they're laughing at the jokes I can see their faces being in awe and it drives me as a performer to really act it more," says operatic singer Joshua Brown.
Officials of the Hub Opera Ensemble say presenting educational events like this one is part of their overall mission.
