Today we bring you the rest of the interview, where she talks specifically about the productions she's directing with us, the double bill of A Florentine Tragedy and Gianni Schicchi.

March Break Opera Camps

 

[This is a guest post by our Public Relations Intern, Alexandra Hong]

Led by professional artist educators and using a current COC production as a source of inspiration, the COC’s March Break Opera Camps give children the opportunity to explore the various artistic components involved in producing an opera. 

This year, on March 15 and 16, young people aged seven to 12 discovered Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi (on the COC mainstage as a double bill with Zemlinsky’s A Florentine Tragedy from April 26 – May 25, 2012), by learning about the story and its themes. Led by Bronwen Low (music), Andy Miller (design), and Jen Johnson (drama and movement) the children experienced how these various elements are used in the production of an opera. At the end of the day, the children demonstrated their knowledge from the workshops in a performance featuring two excerpts from Gianni Schicchi: “Povero Buoso” and “O mio babbino caro.”
