Elisir d’Amore

The “Elisir d’amore” project, from the opera by Gaetano Donizetti, is based on a concept elaborated in Italy by EuropaInCanto. The project aims at involving primary school children in the world of opera, by a fully immersive and playful dimension. 
OperaMus has adapted the project for french speaking children, with the support of the Italian Embassy in Belgium, adding a “language learning by singing” on top of the musical learning process. 
In the course of 6 months of light rehearsing sessions, children without musical background were able to sing by heart, in Italian, 9 arias from the opera.
