Opera University for Children

Talks on opera at the opera. Educational programme for children aged 10+

Children’s university. No laughing matter. Real semesters and lectures, a real student record book. The topic is quite serious, too: opera. But the classes are in a light format, amusing, with lots of anecdotes, attractive and accessible to kids (aged 10–13), taught by fine artists and leading specialists in their field.
