Opera Education was created with the aim of opening the doors of the opera house to the public of tomorrow, strongly believing that the sharing of ideas and knowledge contained in the musical language cancels distances. For this reason, its educational and artistic proposals aim to create a path to discover that diversity is a precious asset that enriches us, working to stimulate curiosity and the sense of community.
In order to meet the individual needs of each young audience member, we have come up with more inclusive solutions for structuring the educational contribution of the Opera domani project (6-14 years):
the production of an inclusive opera booklet with text in Easy to Read and fully translated into Sign Language;
the production of tactile tables faithful to some scenes from the opera: these are drawings in relief that allow blind and visually impaired people to get to know the performance also through its set design;
the translation of some parts of the opera into Sign Language, through choreographies that will be performed by the whole audience;
the programming of accessible multisensory workshops to get to know and appreciate the opera through all the senses;
the possibility for the public to record their own voice for the audio description that will accompany the performance, thanks to a system of radios available to the public;
on the day of the performance, access to the backstage area to discover the set design, costumes and props.
