Opera Works (Grades K-6)
If you doubt that a program about opera could be one of our funniest and most popular offerings, you haven’t seen OPERA WORKS. Your students will never again think opera is stuffy once the cast presents their lighthearted mix of great singing, comedy and audience participation. With excerpts from The Barber of Seville – Porgy & Bess – La Traviata – Don Giovanni and more, the student volunteers and general audience alike will share a wonderful opportunity to develop a lasting appreciation of opera. Created in 1978 by Stephen Mosel, Artistic Director of Young Audiences New Jersey and still being performed today in the Garden State, OPERA WORKS is presented in Connecticut for the first time. The longrunning program is being performed by an enthusiastic and very talented cast from the Hartt School of Music. Length: 45 minutes
One performance: $1,150
Two Back-to-back: $,1420
Three performances: $1,690
