A Short Study of the Opera

The kids and I have been working through this book since last week in anticipation of our trip to the Opera, tomorrow. The book is wonderful in really explaining the workings behind the scenes, as well as on stage at the Opera. So far, our favorite opera from this book is "The Magic Flute".

Ava Mae has taken to walking around the house singing in Opera fashion ... which usually leads Devin to ask her to stop as it gives him a headache, or so he says. The book comes with two CD's which retell the operas in the book. The girls have enjoyed listening to them in the afternoon as they act out the scenes on their makeshift "stage" they made for themselves.
More to report tomorrow, after we attend "The Baker of Seville", performed by the Atlanta Opera at JFBC.
