Giving Opera “Campers” the tools to engage in their communities is one of the important missions of LA Opera’s Opera Camp, an annual three-week intensive where youth from all around Los Angeles gather to sing, dance and learn how to tackle deeper social issues using the power of music and acting. Last week, we enjoyed the culminating performances of our 2018 session with The White Bird of Poston and The Prospector. Though we spent ample time teaching the kids about opera, we also took the time to teach our LA Opera Teaching Artists as well.
On August 27, LA Opera’s award-winning Opera for Educators series returns with a day devoted to exploring our season opener, Giuseppe Verdi’s Macbeth. This program explores opera from interdisciplinary points of view with a diverse group of engaging professionals and academics. Teachers gain insight about Macbeth, the history of opera as an art form and as a form of social commentary, as well as learn about opera in general. Opera for Educators is a place for teachers to be inspired by rich content and fall in love with opera, while also discovering how opera can be used to integrate arts into classroom curriculum.
