Opera for All

Thanks to a grant from a generous donor, the children at Marillac St. Vincent Family Services participated in a year-long program with the end goal of creating their very own unique opera. The teaching artists from Chicago Opera Theater worked with the children to develop their knowledge of the performing arts, while guest artists were invited to help them with the lyrics, composition, set and costume design, and choreography of the opera.  This month, students in the OFA program performed their opera for their parents and peers.   On May 2nd, students at St. Vincent's performed their opera "Super School in Space," and Marillac students performed their original opera "After-school Blues" on May 14th.
