We’ve all heard kids sing in the shower (usually the latest radio hit or movie theme song), but have you considered that they may have actual potential to hone their vocal talents? Vancouver Opera will be offering summer camps designed to provide kids and teens with an interactive musical and theatrical experience. They will get to learn all about how an opera is produced, including everything from writing the libretto (the text of an opera) and score to designing costumes to performing on-stage. The teen intensive program will also offer master classes and opportunities to create and build a set, which is arguably the most exciting and visually important part of an opera stage. Even if they don’t end up becoming the next opera production star, at least they’ll sound more refined in the bathroom. – The Georgia Straight
