The procedure applied by Opera domani - which for more than twenty years has been promoting the passion for lyric opera - is based on the skills and the experience of an interdisciplinary team that draws inspiration from Carlo Delfrati, a music teacher and innovator inside and outside the school system.
At the heart of Opera domani lies the education and the preparation of the audience in the comprehension of the opera in its marvellous complexity. Therefore, it is clear that teachers and educators are the key to success of this ambitious mission.
During the months before the show, the trainers of the project meet teachers all around Italy in order to provide them with the right instruments to work in class with the students in view of the participation to the opera in the theatre.
The educational program incudes three meetings:
I MODULE Music Education: description of the didactic materials of the project (libretto, cd, and pamphlet), introduction to the opera, plot and main characters; analysis of the poetic libretto; listening of the pieces useful to comprehend the opera; didactic proposals of the project (activities, construction of the props), additional didactic proposals (interdisciplinary and multimedia connections, videos, arias, games and methodological insights for activities in class); reference to sources and didactic materials online.
II MODULE Choir: description of the choirs (number, level of complexity); technical -vocal and musical analysis of the songs; teaching of the basic singing techniques, music reading; listening and singing of the pieces, didactic proposals for choirs, additional recreational and educational activities and other methodological insights for preparatory activities in class.
