Parkside Students Experience Cinderella And Opera

Sixteen Parkside Elementary School students participated in Jules Massenet’s Cinderella under the direction of Opera for the Young performing artists. The actors had classroom chats with the students in the morning where they conducted singing warm-ups with the students and discussed opera concepts. All Parkside students have been learning about opera and Cinderella in music class. There was a performance for the students in the afternoon, and a public performance in the evening.  Parkside students Briana Vang and Carter Adelmeyer are shown here with the “Prince.”
