The Opera Program is Back at WGE!


Are you a 3rd, 4th or 5th grader who would like to perform with the San Francisco Opera right here at our school? No opera experience required! More information here.


Come audition for a spot in our cast for this Fall’s classic opera La Bohéme by Giacomo Puccini. There are 11 main roles and spots in the chorus. Rehearsals are in Ms. Palhidai’s room (K-2). 


Auditions: Wednesday, Aug 31 after school in Ms. Palhidai’s room. Please come prepared to sing a short song (e.g., Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star) or recite a piece from a play. No need for music, just bring your voice!  Also, bring your completed and signed permission slip. We will inform about roles via email and distribute scripts on the first rehearsal. We have a role for everyone who auditions! There are speaking roles and a chorus.


Rehearsals: All rehearsals are mandatory! Rehearsals are on 9/7, 9/14, 9/21, 9/28, 10/12 and 10/19 from 3-4pm.  


Shows: Wednesday, Oct. 26 in the WGE Cafeteria starting at 7:45 a.m. for costumes/final rehearsal with four SF Opera performers and a pianist. There will be three shows on performance day (45 mins each, times TBD). The final morning dress rehearsal is required.
