This is the first volume of a new series that brings opera to life as an art form that can be understood and enjoyed by everyone!

The familiar fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck is the ideal jumping-off point to explore this art form, truly one of the world's great forms of human expression. The series will challenge students to think about communication and storytelling as something that can reach beyond speaking and writing. Because opera is a multiart form, it invites students to explore several of the basic ways humans communicate through words, music, dance, drama, and visual arts.

Music! Words! Opera! Hansel and Gretel includes complete lesson plans, an opera outline, activities, handouts, study questions, assessment tools, a glossary, and a DVD of a classic performance conducted by the renowned Sir Georg Solti (in itself a $25 value!).

Future components in this series will feature the opera Aida as well as a Create Your Own Music! Words! Opera! module to guide teachers and students through the process of composing and producing an original work of opera or music-theater.

Developed by educators and opera professionals, Music! Words! Opera! is for upper elementary and middle school music classes.

This series uses the basic human instinct for telling stories to introduce students and teachers to a whole new world of creative expression through opera.
