Opera Camp starts next week


Pensacola Opera will once again present two weeks of Opera Camp for children ages 8-12 (or entering the eighth grade).

Week One, July 11-15, will include activities and a performance based on Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly. Week Two, July 25-July 29, will have campers perform in their own version of Guiseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto. Each camp is from 9am-4pm Monday through Thursday, with a final performance for family and friends at 5pm on Friday. All activities are held at the Pensacola Opera Center.

Opera Camp gives children a chance to experience all of the elements of opera production. It culminates in a public performance of an opera created by campers under the guidance of a professional opera director and musical coaches. Campers play music and theatre games that teach them the skills used in operatic performance, and will gain hands-on experience in set, costume, prop, and makeup design. No previous experience or training is necessary for Opera Camp.

Cost is $150 per week – each week is a separate program. Camp fees include lunch, snacks, all materials and a t-shirt. A limited number of camp scholarships are available.
