Summer Residency at Niu Valley Middle School

Incoming 6th, 7th, and 8th graders are invited to put on a show with HOT at Niu Valley Middle School over the 2017 summer !

HOT’s Education team will be at Niu Valley Middle School this summer working with students to produce the beloved opera Verdi’s Macbeth.

What: Students will sing, create props, sets and other elements of an opera and then perform it.

Where: Niu Valley Middle School

When:  June 1 to 29 (performance on June 28) . Rehearsals are weekdays from 8 am to 12 pm.
How: Registration must be in person at Niu Valley Middle School. Cost is $200 for the session. The school will only take cash at this point, because checks will not have enough time to clear. The course name is Summer Drama.

If there are any problems please contact Erik Haines at 596-7372 ext. 207.

The production is an extension of HOT’s residency program, which turns a school, grade level or participating classrooms into an Opera Production Company. The Opera Residency has become an annual learning program for the schools, and its success shows. 

The program is a great interactive tool for integrating arts into your curriculum through the art of opera. In addition to its foundation in literature, opera offers multiple opportunities for tie-ins to math and other core subjects. The program can be a great complement to Core Curriculum goals.
