The Regio for schools
Great novelties and long-awaited returns, concerts and shows involving, the participation of the audience, with titles from the great repertoire and new discoveries. No greater variety could there be of new Season offerings devoted to the young and very young.
The most important of these begin in November with the super-classic Elixir of Love by Gaetano Donizetti, in pocket-size format for young people: hasn’t it ever happened that the most naive pupil in the class falls in love with the teacher’s pet? Well, that’s exactly what happens to Nemorino with the pretty and capricious Adina.
We pass from light stories to important history, which summons us for two momentous anniversaries: A Waltz in War Time, a moving collection of accounts of experiences from the front on the occasion of the centenary of the end of the First World War, and a symphony concert for the traditional International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
What follows is an absorbing immersion into music, with the concerts of Orchestral Journey and CantiAmo!: combined with the preparatory workshops, they become truly unforgettable experiences.
Children will have a great time at Christmas with a show that has toured the five continents, Extraordinary Concert, interpreted by very special characters: the marionettes of the greatest puppet theatre in the world, the Obraszov Theatre.
In March another puppet, totally Italian, will be the protagonist of the colorful Pinocchio by Pierangelo Valtinoni and Paolo Madron, with the magical stage direction of Luca Valentino. The show is interactive, following the well-oiled formula of Let’s Sing the Opera.
And the very young? They, too, will have the opportunity to watch, listen and sing together with the delightful protagonists of the miniature version of Elixir, Dolceamaro e la pozione magica. We guarantee that there will be plenty of involvement and laughs for all the children present!
To all of this is added workshops, guided tours, interdisciplinary courses in collaboration with other cultural organizations, informative meetings with teachers, a blog and everything else that can accompany for a whole year the School…at the Opera.
