'A rather boring theatre play where some people just shout'...'some people with really nice clothes that sing very loud'. The Opera of Thessaloniki found pretty interesting the views of the elementary and high school students who filled forms about judging the play. In order to change children's point of view, we have organized an educational program named 'Pais Opera'. It is about a theatre workshop that gives students the opportunity to gain knowledge and experiences about opera through puppet theatre. The workshop works on Carl Orff's opera 'The Wise Woman' and includes: directory set construction costume design puppet design / puppet play.
