Elementary Schools Welcome OPERA Iowa
Thanks to the generosity of the Linn-Mar Foundation, OPERA Iowa is visiting all seven Linn-Mar elementary schools.
The performances are becoming an annual tradition at Linn-Mar. Some of the buildings held Fancy Day. Students were invited to dress up in the fanciest clothes parents would allow, making “Going to the Opera” extra special.
OPERA Iowa is the state’s largest and most expansive program in arts education and one of the most innovative programs of its kind, Des Moines Metro Opera’s award-winning, regional arts education program features professional musical performances designed specifically for young people
The seven-member OPERA Iowa Troupe presented Rusalka: The Littlest Mermaid. with music by Antonín Dvořák Text, arrangement, and concept by Joshua Borths.
