“An Opera is a Story” with Toledo Opera

Opera Ignite is proud to collaborate with Toledo Opera to bring opera to preschoolers! “An Opera is a Story” is a classroom residency program that engages children ages 3-5 in early literacy and cognitive skills by exploring famous operas. In 2015, the children explored the opera¬†Hansel and Gretel. As they¬†sang and danced with the characters, they solved problems, visualized the setting, and acted out the sequence of the story. The teachers were also encouraged to use the music and drama strategies in their daily teaching.

Many thanks to WGTE for visiting the classrooms and putting together this fabulous video of the experience!
