Opera Up Close 2021
PLEASE NOTE: The Opera Up Close program is fully booked at this time. If you would like to share an opera program with your students, check out our All About Opera video, or other digital resources on the Connecting to Classrooms page.
If you are a secondary school choir teacher and would like to schedule a live presentation of this program in your most advanced choir class during 2021-22, please write to Education Director Paula Fowler at email@example.com.
Utah Opera’s 5 Resident Artists are available during choir classes for a live video presentation that includes live performance and discussion as well as pre-recorded opera scenes. The program can be tailored for your class period length, 40-60 minutes. The finale of the presentation is the artists’ film of The Better Man, an opera commissioned last year from a Utah librettist and composer on the Utah theme of Martha Hughes Cannon’s 1896 run for Utah State Senate. Filmed at a Victorian-age home in Salt Lake City’s Avenues.
After viewing this program, please fill out our teacher survey.
The program is offered in collaboration with the Utah Education Network and the Utah State Legislature’s Professional Outreach in the Schools (POPS) program.
