Hands on Opera
In this programme students create an opera from scratch. The main issue here is the creative process as the students are involved in different artistic areas: literary creation, music, theatre, visual arts and body language. Children learn through their own experience as they participate in the creative process and the performance of the opera, making it part of their collective and individual imagination.
The scheme includes workshops where they learn skills and resources to appreciate, enjoy, value and produce art, getting to know and understand the different art statements which shape opera and how they relate with each other globally. Art is an important tool to encourage eagerness to learn, getting to know other people and their culture and the benefits of working in a group.
