On April 24 Opera for the Young brings live, professional opera to elementary school audiences with annual tours. Students appear onstage in chorus and cameo roles, performing for their peers right alongside professional artists.
All productions are fully staged, sung in English and adapted especially for kids. This performing troupe will visit Olson on in the gym to present their production of Donizetti's comic masterpiece "The Elixir of Love". The cast will include selected 4th grade musicians as chorus members. In preparation for the opera performance, our students have been learning about audience behavior during a performance, the components of an opera, This program was paid for by a grant from the D200 Education Foundation.
