Opera Education and Outreach Programs For Students and Audiences of All Ages
Interactive puppet shows for young children that teach the rudiments and fun of opera. Our program of African-American Heroes – Marian Anderson, Leontyne Price, Harriet Tubman, and Paul Robeson – will show their struggles and ultimate triumphs through the glorious art of song. Our newest program, “The Barber of Baltimore,” is a delightful 45-minute version in English of the Rossini classic set in Baltimore in the 1950’s.
Delivers opera programs to Senior Centers throughout Baltimore. We are proud to serve Baltimore City’s vibrant Senior Citizen Community.
Lyric Opera Camp
Benefits high school students who have an interest and ability in vocal music with an emphasis on opera. Students learn vocal, dance, acting, and movement techniques from seasoned professionals and also study the areas of sets, lighting, costumes, and wigs & makeup for four weeks. The summer camp culminates each session with a performance of an opera that they have created, produced and performed themselves. Auditions are held every April/May.
Unique programs will be tailored specifically to meet the needs of individual teachers, classrooms, organizations and personal musicales in your home.
Creates interest among the medical professions about opera and outreach activities at the Lyric. Dinner is held at the Modell Lyric with fascinating speakers on topical medical/musical themes, ending with attendance at the piano dress rehearsal of each opera. Sponsored by Dr. and Mrs. Allan D. Jensen.
In order to continue offering these Education and Outreach opportunities to people of all ages, we need your help! Please show your support by contacting Kathy Grayson 410-900-1162 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lyric Opera In The Curriculum
A program where dedicated funding is secured to offer students free tickets to opera performances that would complement the students’ studies and curriculum. Each opera always has historical, musical, artistic, literary and societal elements which can tie-in to any number of school studies and disciplines. Not only is this program beneficial to the students, but our audiences are also energized by seeing so many young people at our performances. This is a wonderful way to nurture our future audiences and a unique addition to any course work.
