Monkey See Monkey Do is a one-act opera by award winning Texas born composer Roberto X. Rodriguez. It is based on the classic folk tale of the Hat Seller and the Monkeys. The opera is derived from the Mexican version of the old folktale and the libretto, written in English, incorporates sections of the Spanish language. This is the 4th most frequently performed modern-day opera for students in America. This children’s opera was created for family audiences and is a stirring musical and visual treat. The score blends elements of Mexican traditional folk melodies with the contemporary style of the composer. The musical score encourages audience participation, the combination of English and Spanish is ideal for the introduction of language study, and the exposure to the Mexican culture fits perfectly into any humanities curriculum.
