Why is opera great for kids?
There is something in opera for all different kinds of learners to engage with a story:
Visual learners- can engage with the scenery and the physical representations of what is happening
Kinesthetic learners- can enjoy the movement, the dance, the stage fighting
Musical/Auditory learners- will have non stop stimulation from start to finish!
Interpersonal learners- can enjoy thinking about the relationships between characters on stage
Intrapersonal- can enjoy the reflection that music inspires and may especially enjoy the arias, when a character reflects and sings music that matches their emotions
Linguistic learners- have the text of the libretto to analyze and think of. They may enjoy operas in foreign languages.
