Opéra Louisiane visits the elementary school children in their schools and offers programming for grades Kindergarten through Sixth Grade. Opera Byoux's program was designed to engage children in opera through interactive storytelling. Four opera singers joined pianist and Artistic Director, Michael Borowitz to teach children what opera is all about. Students learned about the different voice types and how a story is created. A beginning, middle, and end. Maestro Borowitz led the students in a discussion about the singers, the props, and costumes, and the children helped choose characters and titles for these improvisational opera performances, making each performance a unique and speically curated event for the students in attendance.
This season Opéra Louisiane's Young People's Opera Program continues in the schools with children's opera Jack and the Beanstalk.
