Our artists teach the basics of performance storytelling, libretto writing and simple composition. The opera will then be cast, rehearsed and performed at your school so all students learn how a story becomes an opera and how their very own written piece comes alive on stage. This exciting program serves also as an excellent continuation of our Opera à la Carte program.
SPACE AND TIME
Book to Bravo! is a 10-12 week residency. Opera Guild teaching artists visit your class each week. All work can take place in the classroom with the exception of the last two weeks where a more conducive performance space is preferred. The artists team with the classroom teacher to augment the standard curriculum and move the project forward between visits.
Book to Bravo! is available Sept. 30, 2013-May 30, 2014.
Available to grades 4-9.
There is a participation fee of $1,200 for each participating classroom. Financial aid is available for qualifying schools.
This program is made possible, in part, by a generous contribution
from the Cohen Foundation.
