Opera Santa Barbara announces ‘Opera Lab’ Tour of local elementary schools

The Opera Lab, Opera Santa Barbara’s innovative outreach program for children, will tour area elementary schools beginning next month, company officials have announced. Opera Lab sessions will take place in February and March. Additional sessions will be added in late March and early May as needed.

The Opera Lab is an interactive program designed to teach students the rudiments of opera. Guided by four professional singers specially trained in improvisation, participants learn the art form’s building blocks and use them to create their own opera, which is performed for them on the spot.

The popular program is offered free of charge. Schools can request an Opera Lab session at www.operasb.org/operainschools.php. For more information, call 898-3890 or email info@operasb.org.

Founded in 1994 by Marilyn Gilbert and Nathan Rundlett, Opera Santa Barbara is committed to presenting productions and educational programs of the highest quality. Additional information is available at www.operasb.org.
