BRAVA! Why You Should Use Opera in Your Classroom
Faust, Carl
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v76 n4 p55-58 Dec 2010
Opera is music, art, theater, and storytelling. It resembles many musical, visual, theatrical, and literary forms children have already experienced whether they realize it or not. It is an art form that can reach virtually every child on some level because of its emotional power. It can speak to all types of learners because there are many different ways to take ownership of it. Opera can also enrich students with far more than an appreciation of music and theater. But many classroom and even music teachers do not feel comfortable working with opera because they have not had opportunities to learn about it or experience its educational possibilities. The author offers classroom-tested tips on how to help develop curriculum skills through exposure to opera.
