Opera Company Visits Elementary Schools

January 8, 2020 01:14 PM


Many elementary students are enjoying the production of opera this week.

For the past several years, the Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre has been visiting different elementary schools as part of an outreach program to educate audiences about opera.

Wednesday morning, the stage company performed an interactive version of The Enchanted Forrest at Grant Wood Elementary. An exciting story for a young audience.

The performers are part of the Theatre's Young Artist Program and are keeping their skills sharp while waiting for the next opportunity. 

The company only has a week to visit as many schools as possible, so they rotate out each building every other year.
