Santa Fe Opera Summer Camp

When it comes to summer camps, one of the most unique ones around – an opera summer camp – is in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The Santa Fe Opera has released information on its 2018 Santa Fe Opera Storytellers Summer Camp. Held from June 4 to June 15, 2018, the camp focuses on all aspects of creating an opera, including performing, designing, composing, and writing. The camp is open to students who will be entering 3rd grade through 8th grade. The cost is $495.

The instructor for the opera summer camp is Becca Holmes, an Albuquerque-based theater director and teaching artist.  Holmes is a member of the Performing Arts faculty at Albuquerque Academy, and also serves as the production stage manager for TEDXABQ.

During the camp, kids will learn to activate their voices, bodies, and imaginations, expanding their individual potential through creative opera exploration. A typical camp day includes a set design session, libretto writing, creating character maps with costumes, and composing.

This is the third annual Opera Storytellers Summer Camp.

“I wanted to thank you two for once again organizing a truly phenomenal summer camp,” said one parent who sent her kids to the first two opera camps. “Over the past two years my kids, Lucas and Kira, have learned so much in your camp and enjoyed it tremendously. Not only has it been a great opportunity for them to learn about opera but it has also been a valuable chance for them to become more comfortable in front of a crowd and with the whole idea of performing. I am so grateful to you for keeping this camp going. Lucas and Kira, as well as many others, would like to continue attending what they unanimously consider to be the best camp in town.”

When: June 4-15, 2018.
Time: 9:00am to 4:00pm each day.
Where: Santa Fe Opera.
Other: Lunch can be included at additional charge. Snacks will be available.
