Macbeth at Niu Valley Middle School
Incoming 6th, 7th, and 8th graders are putting on a show with HOT at Niu Valley Middle School!
HOT’s Education team will be at Niu Valley Middle School this summer working with students to produce the beloved opera Verdi’s Macbeth. Students will sing, create props, sets and other elements of the opera and then perform it at Niu Valley Middle School on Wednesday, June 28 at 6 p.m.
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.
