Opera on Tap’s Playground Opera program immerses elementary school students in the creation, production and performance of an opera. With the guidance of professionals working in the field today, the students write the libretto, design the costumes, sing in the chorus, and explore the operatic experience from the first moment of an opera’s creation to the exciting culmination of its performance. The stage? Their own schoolyard playground.
Opera on Tap returns to Harlem PS 129 for the third year in a row, presenting a colorful re-imagining of Donizetti’s Elixir of Love, co-produced by the students.
