Tri-Cities Opera welcomes you to a rainforest filled with bright animal characters and puppets aplenty! Papagayo is a story of celebrating differences and working together. When the hungry Moon Dog threatens their beloved moon, Papagayo helps to save the day and encourage the night creatures to see him in a new light!

Adjustments to the production include:
