• Bringing Communities Together Through Opera

    By Makenzie Morgan & Sarah Forestieri

    A spring update on COC’s Opera Makers programming for students

    The incredible thing about opera is that there are so many ways to enter into and participate in this highly collaborative art form. At its core, opera is really about storytelling – whether that’s through music, poetry, visual art and design, or movement, all those elements are collaborating to communicate a story about the reality of some shared human experience.

    Makenzie Morgan and Graeme Black Robinson lead a virtual workshop

    As one of the most collaborative art forms around, creating great opera for the stage is a team effort all the way. Beyond the composer’s score and librettist’s story, it takes a visionary creative team, using imaginative set and costume design, to produce an immersive world for the audience to get lost in.
