'Opera, at your school!' - the new project of the Brasov Opera and 'Operetta sings and dances', in the performance hall!
"Opera, at your in school!" - this is the slogan of the new project of the Brașov Opera that promotes performances for children, in the current context of the pandemic.
The world would be sad without theater and art, music and poetry, without that magic that manages to disconnect us completely from everyday life, to fill our souls with joy and happiness. "It was imperative to reinvent ourselves, to find life-saving solutions, both for us and for our little spectators. The pandemic failed to lock the doors of our institution, but, on the contrary, the rehearsals were more intense and deeper. , the ambition and interest of the Opera Collective was greater, the mobilization was impressive ", says Violeta Brînzea, PR specialist, project coordinator.
In this sense, the performances are filmed on the stage of the Brasov Opera, they take place normally, as if the children were present in the hall, transmitting their positive energy to all artists. The films transposed on special storage devices mediate the connection between the Brașov Opera and all the educational institutions in the county, starting from kindergartens to schools and high schools.
The advantage of this project is that the show reaches the classroom directly through modern technology, the disadvantage being that interaction with artists and emotion will be completely absent… but we want to meet again with small spectators, as soon as possible, in the Brașov Opera .
