Item No: 7041


by Clifford J. Brooks and Roger Ames of Opera America. 

The familiar fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck is the ideal jumping-off point to explore this art form, truly one of the world's great forms of human expression. The series will challenge students to think about communication and storytelling as something that can reach beyond speaking and writing. Because opera is a multi-art form, it invites students to explore several of the basic ways humans communicate—through words, music, dance, drama, and visual arts.

Music! Words! Opera! Hansel and Gretel includes complete lesson plans, an opera outline, reproducible activities, handouts, study questions, assessment tools, a glossary, plus online resource bank link & password included and a DVD of a classic performance conducted by the renowned Sir Georg Solti (in itself a $25 value!).

This series uses the basic human instinct for telling stories to introduce students and teachers to a whole new world of creative expression through opera. Developed by educators and opera professionals for Upper Elem/MS. 112 pp.
