Bringing the Characters Alive (Dramaturgy) | The Magical Theater of Music

This lesson is an introduction to The Magical Theater of Music. Little advance preparation is necessary for the viewing. Since the generic name opera has pejorative connotations in the minds of many, both children and adults the word opera will not be used until the end of this series. Teachers and students may wish to refer to what they are hearing, seeing and experiencing on television as a theater of music.
