We are replacing our in-class engagements with an engaging program, where the students learn about singing, opera history, and then, they create their own opera scenes at home. We will provide a step by step manual – written at a 6th grade level for accessibility – as well as an accompanied video that leads them through the project with physical and vocal exercises. The goal is to have them film their scenes at home, and then, via google classroom, they’ll send them to us. We edit these videos into one short clip and then we’ll share it back with the class for a GRAND FINALE!
Students can create scenes from the following famous operas:
- The Barber of Seville
- The Pirates of Penzance
- The Marriage of Figaro
- The Valkyrie
- The Magic Flute
This program can be used any way you see fit!
The instructional video is easily streamed right through our website. Educators will be provided a Google Classroom where the students will have access to the instructional PDF, and, after creation, where they will upload their own scenes at the end of the project!
Usage fee: Based on a sliding scale
