With the launch of SCO’s Fourth Annual Summer Opera Camp, The company brings the love of opera to the next gen- eration. These 3-week intensives bring together 12-to-25-year-old students with no audition requirement. Instruction includes the history of opera, types of opera and composers, theatre etiquette, stage direction, vocal and movement instruction, and how to work in ensembles. The camp culminates in free concerts on the stages of Thurman White Arts Academy and Nevada Ballet Theatre Acedemy/Summerlin Library.
Sin City Opera pioneered the first “sensory adaptive” educational program in Nevada in 2017, with the support of the Nevada Arts Council. This program was created to bring opera to students who are mentally and physically disadvantaged from pre- school to high school. The program reached three schools in its inaugural year, and will perform this season at Palo Verde High School, Western High school, Derfelt Elementary School and East Las Vegas Community Center. Titled ”What is Opera”this 30-minute program comes with teaching materials, a coloring handout, and a question-and-answer session with the artists.
