Bring your students to the opera!
The Opera Look-In program has been charming young audiences in the greater DC area for over twenty years. This 55-minute program is the perfect way to introduce your classroom to opera. The Washington National Opera Domingo-Cafritz Young Artists will perform scenes from one of Mozart’s greatest operas, Don Giovanni, in a presentation designed to creatively engage young audiences. Students will discover the behind-the-scenes magic of opera including topics such as lighting design, scene changes, stage tricks, musical themes, and much more!
Opera is a naturally multi-dimensional and multimedia art form, and by presenting its many facets, the Opera Look-In creates a dynamic experience for students from 4th to 8th grade. Designed specifically to academically and creatively engage children, this experience leaves students enchanted and singing for more!
The full program includes:
