"How I Met My Teacher" goes to ... the Opera! edited and compiled by mJ buell Toronto's new opera house has done much already to generate greater public interest in opera. But there is some risk that the fascination may be only skin deep - part of Toronto's current love affair with new and renewed public buildings. It's also difficult to say whether that interest will extend to or benefit other opera companies in the region. But what a time for a concerted effort from the entire community to encourage people of all ages to look at opera. Websites and brochures reveal after-school, weekend and vacation classes, workshops and camps for children as young as five, opportunities for young professionals and adults, for aspiring professionals, as well as for gifted amateurs, to help ensure not only future generations of performers but also future generations of audiences. Enlightened initiatives offer free or discounted tickets to rehearsals and performances for students.Brave programs bring artists right into schools, from the larger companies on down to brave little ensembles like Shoestring Opera and Opera Everywhere. But parents, grandparents, teachers, administrators, and education advocates need to know they are available, understand and insist that they are necessary and valuable. Serious students who "get hooked " as teenagers need to know how and where they can continue at a post-secondary level. The Royal Conservatory of Music, The University of Toronto Faculty of Music Opera Division, are obvious resources. The COC Ensemble Studio program serves as a bridge between academic post-secondary programs and the professional world of opera for young Canadian singers, opera coaches and stage directors. The Canadian Opera Company provides at least twenty education programs: lectures, preperformances chats, backstage tours and discounted dress rehearsal tickets and a wide range of learning opportunities for adults such as Opera 101 and, currently, Wagner 101, 201 & 301. They have child/youth programs and initiatives with engaging names like Opera for a New Age (ages 18-29), Opera Jam! (grades 9-12), Operaworks (Grades 6-9), Opera Storytime (kindergarten to grade 5). Opera Atelier has noticed a 900% growth in student attendance at productions and programs. The Making of an Opera program allows school groups a hands-on opportunity to participate in various facets of opera production, and ensures that up to 1,000 students are WholeNote MarketPlace able to attend every Opera Atelier dress rehearsals free of charge. Opera Atelier education and outreach has included collaboration with the Faculty of Music, U of T, The Glenn Gould School and Young Artists Performance Program, Dare Arts, Tafelmusik's Baroque Summer Institute and George Brown Theatre. Opera Atelier's pre-performance lectures provide insight for all audience members. Tapestry New Opera's unique education programs are, like the company, creation-based. More than a series of demonstrations, lectures or back stage tours, they embed animateurs, creative artists, performers and designers in schools around the province in a hands-on process that parallels their professional practice. Hence the name: JNside Opera. Since the pilot project inspired by IRON ROAD (2001), Tapestry has engaged hundreds of young people in collaborative creations based on the themes surrounding new opera productions and contemporary subject matter Opera Ontario's, Young People's Night at the Opera enables students 8-18 to attend a final dress rehearsal (/ticket). Opera Look-In, open to all members of the community, allows CONrlNUES di· ~? _JJ.. :'?~c· Education ~-
