    Actually, Rosenkavalier is sort of a big deal!

    One tip I have to offer: The Tales of Hoffman is the perfect opera for kids.  The big-concept story, the crazy mechanical-doll story in Act I with the big comedy and the vocal acrobatics, the non-stop awesome tunes.  I brought my daughter to the the Met-in-HD presentation of that a couple of years back, and she was transfixed from the get-go.

      .....Les contes d'Hoffmann was kind of a weird one, I'll admit, which may have been more appropriate for kids in that sense :) .  Not sure what they would have made of the detached doll's head, unless that's kind of normal fare for them ;) .
