5th Graders’ educational visit to the Lausanne Opera: when the magic happens!

On Tuesday, 7th and Wednesday, 8th October, three 5th grade classes went to the Lausanne Opera to find out about some different theatrical professions.

The children were able to meet a machinist, a lighting specialist, a props specialist, a dresser and a make-up artist and of course singers. They had the opportunity to take part in workshops combining explanations and demonstrations. At the heart of the opera, between the stage and hangers, they discovered the mysteries of staging (artificial snow and magical lights or truer-than-life props...) and the importance of teamwork to allow the magic of the show to do its effect. The visit ended with three operas sung by a mezzo soprano... dressed up especially for the children wearing a costume and a wig. Between Greek tragedy, Mozart's Don Giovanni or Offenbach’s Perichole, students enjoyed the lyric sung without a microphone!

Some of our students will continue the adventure with their parents by going to the children's opera, "The Little Prince", which will be performed in November.
