Enrichment Spotlight: Opera Theatre

During second quarter, Mrs. Micic and representatives from Opera Theatre of Saint Louis led a course that studied the components of opera. Students grew their skills in acting, vocals, and music accompaniment, while creating and composing their own show!

The Opera Enrichment course concluded with a captivating production of Goodness Gracious: A Knight’s Tale, the story of a young knight in the 1500s who was sent to Loyola Academy by the Knights Counsel to get his act together. The opera included a hilarious libretto, group dances, two singing solos, and a short guest appearance by Dr. Clark! The audience was charmed by our students’ performance and celebrated their work with a standing ovation.
