Opera Lafayette is proud to announce a new teaching residency at Rutgers University, beginning with the 2015-16 production of Catone in Utica.
Since its inception, Opera Lafayette has been conducting in-school educational programming in Washington, DC, working with many public and private secondary and middle schools. Opera Lafayette has also partnered with other organizations, such as the Alliance Française, to bring educational programs into these schools.
Students participate in interactive classroom sessions with Opera Lafayette artists and present their work in community performances with Opera Lafayette. With Opera Lafayette choreographers students have interpreted and danced the central dramatic action of opera ballets. With the company's young-artist singers they have learned and sung the popular 18th-century songs which close many comic operas. Students have also presented artwork they created in response to the music and story of an opera, and have created their own translations and narrations of works Opera Lafayette has performed.
