Spring 2021 Opera
La Cenerentola Opera by Salt Marsh Opera | Music by Gioachino Rossini
Suitable for Grades 4-7
Loos Center for the Arts, Woodstock CT 06281
A delightful adaptation of this classic story; a merry frenzy of ardor and trickery, chaos and comedy!
Participating classes will receive an interdisciplinary study guide, an in-school workshop in the spring with a singer and pianist, and are invited to attend the one hour, abridged, fully-staged production.

Check out what people are saying about our Opera Program!
“..these students have developed an appreciation for the arts and realize their importance to our lives and to how we view the world… The opera is an important part of the children’s schooling… Hopefully it will stay with them forever!”
“This provides an enriching cultural experience and an appreciation of opera as an art form, heightened and made accessible by the preview and the study guide.”
“[In my school] we have very few resources and no instrumental program. With the help of P/Arts, my students have the opportunity to hear a live performance and be exposed to quality musical literature at the same time.”
“[The opera singer who came to our school] was absolutely the best ambassador for opera and music in general that I have had the privilege of having in any school… Thank you so much- it will have a profound impact on children’s lives.”
