Living Opera for FLIGHT: February 3 to 18, 2020

Collaboration in Opera
Opera Anna and Super Geoff return! Through the lens of Pacific Opera Victoria’s 2020 production of Flight, and our school tour of The Flight of the Hummingbird, Anna and Geoff will continue to look at the vital roles both on stage and off involved in staging an opera, as well as expanding on the story-telling techniques employed by singing performers and directors alike.
This 40-minute presentation is for any classroom looking to actively engage in exploring the story-telling world of opera and offers live music and classroom participation.
