CONCERTS IN THE CLASSROOM
Opera Columbus presents an interactive program of music for your classroom or school. Performing artists spend time performing, talking with your students, answering questions, and discussing elements of opera: performing, practicing, healthy behaviors, productions, traveling, and languages.
Additionally, shows are accompanied by Resource Guides to prepare your class for our visit, increasing the opportunity for engaging conversation between the artists and the students. Recommended for Grades K-12.
What happens when you mix four opera singers, one box of stage props, a dash of operatic terminology, and the imagination of the audience? You get Opera Columbus’ Improv Opera! “Funny!”, “Brilliant!”, “Amazing!” are just some of the words used to describe this fast-paced program that introduces operatic voices and terminology, drama, and story structure in a unique, interactive format. With “fill in the blank” and multiple choice questions, Improv Opera allows the audience to decide the fate of the performers as they create a world premiere opera that is then performed right in front of their very eyes. Recommended for grades K-8.
