SCHMOPERA | Opera for Kids

By Jenna Douglas on November 12, 2014

It’s true that enough slapstick comedy will get laughs from kids, even without much artistry behind it. But children are an honest litmus test for something like opera. They react in a big way, using their voices and bodies to tell the performers just how they feel about what’s happening onstage. Conversely, it’s really noticeable when there’s no reaction at all. If a performer mumbles his words, a joke falls flat and crickets are heard. If there’s no eye contact, no connection between singers and the kids, it’s pretty easy to lose their attention and never get it back. Stage director Ashlie Corcoran has her fair share of experience in directing children’s opera: “When I am directing an opera for children, my number one priority is that they have an artistic and cultural experience. By that, I mean that sometimes live performance directed at children is used as a vehicle to explore an issue, or a moral or a lesson. Personally, my priority is that the young audience walks away from their experience jazzed by what they saw – curious about the music, about staging and design, and inspired by live storytelling. Basically – wanting to see more opera, or theatre, or dance.”
