Opera based learning is an instructional approach that uses the many arts and crafts involved in an opera production, which allows children to gain valuable skills in literacy and collaboration, self-confidence, and an increased capacity for self-expression. Libretto writing, music composition, staging, acting, singing, literary analysis, and critical response are utilized as strategies for classroom learning.

Through in-depth workshops, pre-performance talks, and community outreach programs, the Guild deepens the knowledge of adults, from first-time operagoers to the life-long fan who can hum along with every note in the score.

WHY OPERA?

Opera is multi-disciplinary, providing students with opportunities to learn and grow in music, theatre, movement, dance, and visual arts.

With connections to classroom curriculum, including language arts and social studies, opera is a powerful strategy for integrated instruction.

Creating, presenting, and attending opera allows students to cultivate artistic and cultural literacy, while also exercising teamwork, problem-solving, and personal creativity.
