Opera in an hour

These DVDs produced as teaching aids for educators to use in the classroom to start the conversation about opera, live performance and music with their students. Working with a story editor we cut the 2+ hour long opera down to 60 minutes and fill in the gaps in the story with fun narration segments that feature performers from the production. They are fun, intended for kids and a pleasure to work on.

For more information on this series, visit the opera education page.
