Introduce your young learners to opera by dressing up as Mozart and recounting some of the fascinating details of his life and music. After exploring the Metropolitan Opera's site for kids, the class listens to a reading of Kyra Teis's The Magic Flute, selections from Mozart's Magical Fantasy, and watch portions of the opera The Magic Flute on DVD. Finally, groups script, costume, and dramatize the Papageno/Papagena scene from Mozart's opera.
