Welcome to 6th Grade! Opera is an art form in which singers and musicians perform a dramatic work combining text and musical score, usually in a theatrical setting. Opera incorporates many of the elements of spoken theatre, and sometimes includes dance. The 6th Grade spends this school year learning about the history of Opera, components of Opera, including the instruments used in the orchestra, learning about six different Operas and their composers, including what country and language the Opera was written, characters of each Opera, storyline of each Opera, and what an aria is. We then focus on puppetry. Each group will make puppets, and some made great backdrops to be used for their amazing performances! Lots of fun!
