Our 2022-2023 school tour features the abridged version of The Barber of Seville. Set in the fabulous 1950s, this comic opera will leave your students laughing, cheering and inspired. It’s a riotous romp featuring a lovesick count, the blushing object of his affection, a crusty old doctor, and, of course, Figaro. Issues of class consciousness dissolve in the face of true love and hijinks. Entertaining and unforgettable, The Barber of Seville will awe and inspire your students for years to come.
Do you want Opera Idaho to come to your school with this FREE performance? If so, then ask the principal or music teacher at your school to please contact our Education Manager Fernando Menendez regarding available performance dates & times at firstname.lastname@example.org.
education engagement program
In an effort to introduce our younger generations to the world of opera, for the past few years Opera Idaho has toured our local schools with a program geared towards students in grades K-6. The program started with Opera in a Box, an introduction to opera created by local soprano Tiffany Calás. Since then, we’ve upgraded to abridged operas rewritten for our target audience. We have toured the Treasure Valley and beyond with Humperdinck’s Hansel & Gretel, Mozart’s The Magic Flute, Massenet’s Cinderella, Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love, and more.
