Pocket Opera & Ballet

 

Interactive opera & ballet performances

 

The new umbrella programme titled Pocket Opera & Ballet for infants, toddlers and primary school children brings us five of the productions to be presented by the Greek National Opera this year in miniature size. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, Coppélia to music by Léo Delibes and with a choreography by Edward Clug, Ruggero Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci, Carmen’s ballet version to music by Rodion Shchedrin-Georges Bizet and with a choreography by Johan Inger, as well as Giacomo Puccini’s La bohème, are turned into interactive performances that will invite small artists to get actively involved in them both as performers and audience members.

The programme that is aimed at fostering children’s creativity and imagination will give the chance to participants to take part in theatre, music, and dance workshops, while urging them to experiment and compose their own artistic ideas, which they will then integrate in the abridged versions of the above-mentioned works.
