Opera is one of Italy’s proudest achievements and an excellent Italian language learning tool. That is why IACE has teamed up with DiCapo Opera Theatre to carry out a IACE project called Tutti all’Opera.
Schools affiliated with IACE in the tri-state area are invited to attend these affordable and informative opera performances which are abridged versions of the original opera, created specifically for students who are studying Italian and are fun for all ages!
The General Director of Dicapo, Michael Capasso, will lead the students on an operatic adventure as explains how the plot moves forward during intervals. Following each performance students participate in a lively Q&A session with the actors!
Tickets are only $20 a seat for students and their parents. Teachers go for free.
