Opera Education Opportunities Abound!
Seattle Opera will be offering and involved with several exciting new opera- and theater-education programs this summer. Here's some information about some of these opportunities:
Pirates of Penzance Opera Camp
Hosted at Seattle Public Theater
Directed by Kelly Kitchens and Barbara Lynne Jamison
Adventure on the high seas awaits! Join Seattle Opera and Seattle Public Theater for a hilarious farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, dewy-eyed daughters and an eccentric Major-General, all morally bound to the often-ridiculous dictates of honor and duty. Our camp includes acting, singing and all-round madcap theatrical fun – we’ll have you singing (even if you've never sung before) – and loving it!
July 18-August 12; Monday-Friday, 9am-12pm
August 12 @ 7pm
August 13 @ 2pm and 7pm
August 14 @ 2pm
Cost: $350 (scholarships available)
