Explore the world of John Davies’ operatic version of Jack and the Beanstalk at campTDO. Join the Dallas Opera for a 3-hour interactive discussion that gives campers a first-hand account of what it takes to create an opera production. Under the guidance of TDO teaching artists, campers will get a behind-the-scenes experience of what it takes to perform live opera. Each campTDO session will conclude with a fully-staged performance of Jack and the Beanstalk performed by TDO teaching artists.

Campers will:

  • Learn the building blocks of opera through an interactive discussion
  • Learn what it takes to be courteous audience members
  • Participate in musical and visual arts activities based around the story of Jack and the Beanstalk
