Intro to Opera
SPECIAL EVENTS FOR CHILDREN
Join us for a family friendly intro to opera course. Four arias from classic operas will be performed which involve participation from children. There will be sign-up sheet ahead of time so each child can be assigned a role. There will be small props and small costume pieces.
Children are needed to assist Anne Tormela, opera singer and artistic director of Manhattan Lyric Opera, to perform in 3 opera scenes. No singing or prior rehearsal required; props and costumes are provided. Children needed to play the part of fairies, pirates, mad scientists and more! Parents are welcome to participate and help out in scenes.
