Carolina Opera Experience

Kids learn the art of props, make-up, costumes, scenery and musical preparation in this week-long experience for 5th through 10th graders.

Due to health concerns raised by the spread of COVID-19, the 2020 Carolina Opera Camp has been cancelled.

Refunds will be issued for all those who have paid.

Campers get an exciting, hands-on experience in the art of opera, and the week ends with a public performance. Kids have fun and make new friends while working with professionals and experiencing the excitement of participating in the performing arts!

The program gives children with different levels of musical ability or an interest in performing arts a chance to have an educational experience and gain insight by working with talented and dedicated professionals. They participate in daily workshops that teach the overall techniques of opera production.

Children work with professional-level opera singers, directors and designers as they explore the basics of creating characters with and through music; participate in voice, music reading and rhythm exercises; and learn about set lighting and costume design. Basic knowledge of music and singing is required.

Carolina Opera Experience is directed by Ellen Douglas Schlaefer.
