Tthe Opera Company of Philadelphia opens its doors to area families for the PNC Arts Alive Family Day at the Opera, a chance to go behind the scenes of the Company’s production of Gounod’s Romeo and Juliet (in performance at the Academy of Music from February 11-20, 2011) and learn about the magic of opera. From a stage combat demonstration to a fashion show and a recital, the day offers something for everyone. Attendees will be able to go onto the Academy stage and walk on Romeo’s set, visit the stars’ dressing rooms, sit in the orchestra pit, and participate in engaging educational sessions in the Academy’s Rehearsal Hall and its gorgeous ballroom. By allowing young people an in-depth look into the world of opera, they will come away with a unique understanding of the art form and how it is created by participating in exercises in several genres, witnessing performances and talking to the artisans who create opera.
