Singing and Science

This unique combination of performance and masterclass is Opera Kansas' newest addition to their OPERATION EDUCATION educational initiatives. Opera Kansas will present a modernized version of late 18th century farcical parlor opera and then follow that up with a masterclass for your students. After the introduction into the world of opera Dr. Smith, the Managing Artist Director, will work with your students. Your students will experience vocal technique concepts through the prism of a cause effect relationship.

Parlor opera as a genre was spurred on by Offenbach and his followers. It thrived from the 1870s to the early 20th century. These 12-15 minute long comic pieces are what one of our audience members called a "bite-sized" opera: just enough to hook you and then, reel you in.

We will present one of two "bite-sized" operas for you to consume, A Kiss at the Door or My New Butler, both by Charles Lecoqc.

Presentation time: 50-80 minutes, depending on the length of your class.

Artist: Opera Kansas
