Open Stage is a new program that’s at the heart and soul of the future direction of Opera Queensland. Everyone is welcome at Open Stage, as our hugely popular new Community Workshops attest, but we are still committed to providing authentic and engaging arts learning experiences to Queensland schools.
In 2014 we are delighted to return to Primary School Touring with an exciting new creative collaboration with shake & stir theatre co, which will bring Donizetti's opera The Elixir of Love into primary schools across Queensland. We will also continue to connect secondary students with the power of creative expression and the human voice through our School Residency Program, as well as other programs such as In-School Talks and Primary School Residencies that give insight into sung narrative and the creative process.
The 2014 OperaQ Season is one of the most eagerly anticipated of recent years, with three new mainstage productions, Rigoletto, La bohème, and the Australian première of Philip Glass’s new opera, The Perfect American.
We encourage you to contact Open Stage to see how we can engage you and your students in the creative power of opera.
