Looking for a unique opera experience to add to your upcoming season?
Who Wants to be an Opera Singer? is a fun and interactive introduction to the opera world. Using the format of a game show, this production demonstrates some of the big ideas in opera. Students in grades 3 through 6 will be introduced to opera concepts like voice and character types, the conductor of an opera, the orchestra and more! With a spin of the “Opera Wheel,” our singers compete for a golden award by singing abridged versions of opera’s greatest hits. Come on down for an unforgettable and educational musical journey.
