All School performance, Friday, November 2nd: Concert Series – Opera to Go!
Opera to Go! is a repertory company of male and female vocalists whose mission is to introduce students to opera. With piano accompaniment, the troupe presents an introduction to opera and performs abridged versions of well-known operas. This interactive program answers the question, what is opera, by creating vivid characters and exciting stories with singing. Opera to Go! leads students through the basic elements of opera, then improvises an opera based on a popular story. The audience is invited to join in this opera either as the chorus or the on-stage cast.
