Music! Words! Opera! Hansel and Gretel
By Clifford J. Brooks and Roger Ames 
Spiral-bound book and DVD
109 pages
Grades 5 - 8

This new series brings opera to life as an art form that can be understood and enjoyed by everyone. It is based on the original edition of Music! Words! Opera! published in 1990.

Hansel and Gretel is the first opera that will be expored in the series. Activities will challenge students to think about communication and storytelling as something that can reach beyond speaking and writing. Because opera is a multi-art form, it invites students to explore several of the basic way humans communicate - through words, music, dance, drama, and visual arts.

Music! Words! Opera! Hansel and Gretel includes complete lesson plans, an opera outline, activities, handouts, study questions, assessment tools, a glossary, and a DVD of a classic performance conducted by Sir Georg Solti.
