Join us on Wednesday, January 17 for a workshop designed to introduce educators to Puccini's opera Tosca. Puccini's famous melodrama centers on the celebrated singer Floria Tosca, a master performer. In this workshop, lead by Teaching Artist Amanda Granger, participants will become the diva through several exercises designed to prepare them for performing the opera's most famous aria "Vissi d'Arte," including close listening, creating want statements, and writing and performing a "duet" version with a partner. After completing the workshop, teachers will have a variety of tools to explore performance with their students. Singing not required!
Training rate payment is available for teachers who attend the workshop and bring students to the workshop and bring students to the January 27 broadcast of Tosca at our NYC sites. Met workshops also count towards required professional development hours.
After attending the workshop, you will be eligible to purchase discounted tickets ($55) to the Met performance of Puccini's Tosca on Thursday, January 18 at 8:00pm.
