Could you would you try something new? Here or there? In a house or with a mouse? When persistent Sam-I-Am attempts to persuade the grouchiest of grouches to try a delicious meal of green eggs and ham, we all learn a lesson about having an open mind and heart to new experiences and new friends. This 18-minute production is brought right into your school (or your screen) and is accompanied by a curriculum-linked learning guide to connect the opera to your classroom for a lasting learning experience. In-school performances include an audience jam session with our artists!
Both in-person and virtual (live and pre-recorded) options are available for this program.
The educational touring company of Opera Carolina, Opera Xpress has been sharing the wonder of opera with students, teachers, and families for more than 40 years! Our group of traveling troubadours brings the experience of opera right into schools all across the Carolinas and Northern Georgia, sharing opera with more than 30,000 students and teachers each year. These 45-minute productions are designed expressly for today’s learners, helping bring the world of opera alive as an all-inclusive art form and teaching tool. Performances bring to life creative sets, costumes, and stories, and are accompanied by curriculum-linked educational materials that help teachers integrate the performance into the classroom for a lasting experience.
