Dayton Opera takes on the classic fairy tale, times three! Hear the story told through Rossini’s La Cenerentola, Massenet’s Cendrillon, and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella. Filled with magic, disguises, true love, and a ball, this enchanting production will feature the incredible talents of the four young professional singers from Dayton Opera’s acclaimed Artist-in-Residence Program, who will perform all the roles in this special version.
Opera is a powerful medium for learning about all the arts as well as about history, literature and foreign language. It is an art form that occurs in all cultures, as all peoples use music along with words, drama and dance to express ideas. In addition, opera deals with the human condition—the way people live, think and feel. Opera is, in short, a natural interdisciplinary art form that relates directly to standard school curricula.
You must provide a recently tuned piano and bench or a full-sized electronic keyboard with a stand and chair for this program. This program is approximately 45 minutes in length and is appropriate for grades 6–12 as well as adult audiences. Available March/early April 2020.
