Opera is an excellent tool for enhancing core subjects while also developing 21st-century skills of communication, collaboration and creative thinking. As students engage in this process of musical storytelling, they will explore connections between language arts, social studies, science, mathematics and fine arts, all while discovering their own creative voices.
