Creating your own opera in the classroom, for grades 4-12

Book to Bravo!

Students use interpretive skills and their own imaginative voices to bring literary selections to life. Under the guidance of a team of teaching artists, students write the libretto, composer the score, design the production, rehearse and perform and original piece of music theatre for the school community.

Voices for Social Justice

Issues of concern in students’ lives and society at large serve as the inspiration for personal and moving music theatre projects. Students create original narratives to dramatize current and historical events and add the power of music in a culminating performance for peers, teachers and parents.

SPACE AND TIME FOR BOTH PROGRAMS
Ten weekly class sessions of 90 minutes, a performance and a 45-minute follow-up session with each class. A team of two teaching artists plans content with the classroom teacher and guides the project during classes filled with active, hands-on learning. Teachers work with students to complete additional assignments between visits. Access to performance space and piano in good working order is necessary.
