Dear Treasure Valley Educators,
Opera Idaho invites you and your students to enjoy a performance of Opera in a Box as part of our educational outreach program introducing opera to youth in our community. To make this performance possible, Opera Idaho would like to visit your school during our special tour.
Opera in a Box is an immensely entertaining lesson in opera. With the help of a box filled with costumes and props, four opera singers and a pianist will perform some of opera’s “greatest hits”, while dispelling many typical stereotypes. From Rossini’s The Barber of Seville to Bizet’s Carmen, this outstanding live performance will give your students a fresh look at the art form.
The performances are geared towards grades K-6. The cost is FREE and will run approximately 50 minutes, complete with a question and answer session following the performance. Your school will also be provided with a study guide containing information and activities in preparation for our visit.
Tour Dates: May 11-15 & 18-22, 2015
Times: 10:30am and 1:00pm daily, Monday-Friday
Please fill out the form below if you are interested in having us come to your school. Registration will be open through Friday, April 24. Please note there are only 20 performance slots available and are unable to meet every request. You will be notified of our selections no later than May 1, 2015.
