Any Given Child Tour
Engaging Tulsa’s kids is the focus of Tulsa Opera’s touring production of Music! Magic! Opera! as part of the Kennedy Center’s Any Given Child initiative.
This thrilling, 30-minute journey through the world of opera, allows more than 4,000 second-graders in 51 Tulsa elementary schools to experience music, drama, art and dance in one onstage spectacle. Music! Magic! Opera! brings opera up close and personal in an interactive performance.
Students learn how to create an opera by singing along with performers, going onstage to assist as chorus members, dancers, quick-change artists and stagehands, and even performing as a percussive “orchestra” from their seats!
Music! Magic! Opera! teaches lessons in math, science, history, and reading that educators can use in the classroom. Each performance also includes a Q&A session with students. The 2017-18 Tulsa Opera season brings this free opera program, sponsored by the Arts and Humanities Council of Tulsa, to our community’s second-graders in February.
Stay tuned for updates to Tulsa Opera’s Opera on Tour program as we finalize plans for the season. We are working to bring Music! Magic! Opera! to schools in northeast Oklahoma in Spring 2018 on a discounted fee basis.
