Frog Song is a fairy tale opera for children which follows young Navdeep and Wyatt on a journey of self discovery, finding their true voice, both inside and out. The two meet at a famous singing camp called Camp Songbird which is actually shaped like a real mechanical bird, with wings that flap and everything. At the camp, Navdeep is repeatedly visited by a magical dream with a murky pond and a million little frogs piled high to the sky to create a gigantic wall. This wall of frogs starts to seep into Navdeep’s waking life at Camp Songbird too and Navdeep must figure out how to save the day while she is awake, or is she dreaming?
