TDO Kids Opera Boot Camp

One of the perks of coordinating the Dallas Opera field trips for our home school group is that they also include us in their year round fun! 

Today The Dallas Opera held their Kids Opera Boot Camp for Pre-K and Elementary age children.  Abigail was invited to help out as a junior counselor, interacting with the kiddos.  She had two of the sweetest African American girls that were mesmerized with her hair and kept petting it.  I'm sure the texture was so different to them.  It was so precious.  

During the workshop the kids broke up into groups and worked on rhythm, music, projecting, choreographing, costuming, and staging.  At the end of the day the participants sat back while the pros performed Billy Goats Gruff.  It was a short children's opera addressing bullying.  

Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken,
    and the prey of the tyrant be rescued,
for I will contend with those who contend with you,
    and I will save your children.
Isaiah 49:25
