This bulletin board pack contains 33 posters that help students explore the many different aspects of a good opera. In the explanation slide, we talk about how you can tell that an opera will be good when it exhibits the traits of any good story: character, plot, setting, beginning, middle, and end. This set includes examples from actual operas that illustrate the various concepts (citing the opera that each element came from).

For example:
Plot: Someone is Sick (La Boheme) & Wearing a Disguise (Cosi Fan Tutti)
Character: Doctor (Don Pasquale) & Pirate (Pirates of Penzance)
Setting: Wedding (Marriage of Fiagro) & Restaurant on the Coast (Flying Dutchman)

Click here to see how and why I use these posters in my own music room and get ideas about how to display them!

Included in this set:

* 2 explanatory slides for the bulletin board including one that shows the links of this content to the National Core Arts Standards of NAfME

* Large “What Makes a Good Opera” header text for bulletin board.

* Header and 12 Plot examples from operas.
* Header and 16 Character examples from operas.

***If there are any character/setting/plot elements you know that you would like to have included in this set PLEASE let me know and I’ll gladly include them and update the set! I’m constantly looking to make this set better for all teachers (myself included!)***
