The Great Opera Mix-up and How the West was Sung

Friday, October 25, 2013:  Northeast Elementary in Brighton, CO

"Opera is a story in which everything is sung; where mixed-up people suffer barbs that mixed-up fate has flung."

Learn that opera is musical storytelling - with plot, characters, conflicts and resolution.  This is great preparation for story writing units or reinforcement of literary elements for all grades.


"Along with dreams, they brought their songs; that's how the west was sung."

Western frontier history comes alive when seen through the eyes and music of Colorado's Silver King, Horace Tabor, and his beautiful wife Baby Doe; plus the Unsinkable Molly Brown; along with Clara Brown, freed slave and Colorado pioneer, and other assorted frontier characters.
