Unleash students’ imaginations in this immersive, award-winning program that takes place in your classroom! After the musical telling of a classic opera story, the teaching artist magically unveils props and costumes, encouraging the entire class to act out the story and sing excerpts. This year we are excited to add Rossini's charming La Cenerentola
to the program for second graders.
In this signature program that serves more than 100 Bay Area schools each year, students perform alongside professional singers in a rousing 45-minute adaptation of one of the world's most beloved operas. Masterfully designed, the English-language production features four professional singers, a pianist and a docent who, along with your students, bring the wonder of opera to life. Students rehearse speaking roles under the guidance of the artists, don specially-designed costumes and perform for the entire school community. Schools may also choose to involve a chorus, giving students a chance to sing along with the professionals.
