Art City Elementary wants to thank the Utah Opera Company for presenting "Who wants to be an Opera Star?" on Wednesday April 6, 2023. Many students came away from the assembly singing and pretending to be opera singers, with a little more appreciation for the opera.
The Utah Opera Young artist ensemble for 2022-23, included, Jasmine Rodriguez, Soprano; Winona Martin, Mezzo-soprano; Jehú Otero , tenor; Tshilidzi Ndou, baritone; Laura Bleakley, pianist.
"Who wants to be an Opera Star?" is an introduction to opera: The art form that combines drama, the visual arts, dance, orchestral music and singing. Operas use words, action and music to tell stories full of conflict and emotion, and they are usually entirely sung.
"Who Wants to be an Opera Star?" used the framework of a television game show. The assembly runs as a series of questions and competitions, with four singers in the roles of MC and contestants. Studio audience members (the students) learned about voice types, arias, duets, trios, and quartets.
