The Drew School SF

Opera Parallèle San Francisco will be working with Drew School to present a collaborative production of the contemporary children’s opera, The Araboolies of Liberty Street in November 2012. The opera will be staged as part of OP’s Hands on Opera program under the direction of OP intern Brendan Hartnett with assistance from OP stage director Brian Stauffenbiel, OP interns Maya Kherani,  and Drew School music director James Garrison.

Students from several San Francisco elementary schools will be invited to attend two special daytime performances on November 1st and 2nd, and the public will be invited to attend two free evening performances on November 2nd and 3rd at 7:30 pm.

Opera Parallèle’s Hands on Opera program is designed to engage local students in the craft of preparing and performing contemporary opera alongside professional musicians, singers, dancers and directors.
