Opera Orlando and The Interactive Academy of Performing Arts announced today that they have entered into an agreement to provide live interactive online opera classes to kids and teenagers across the nation

January 16, 2018 – Orlando, Florida. Opera Orlando and The Interactive Academy of Performing Arts announced today that they have entered into an agreement to provide live interactive online opera classes to kids and teenagers across the nation. The inaugural educational series will begin March 19th and will run for ten weeks.

The bi-weekly classes will be divided in two distinctive sessions: 1) Saturdays 10:00-11:30 a.m. - Build an Opera sessions and 2) Mondays 5:00-7:30 p.m. - Acting and Singing Technique.

A final performance uniting onsite students and virtual students will take place on May 19th and will be live streamed to the world (Venue & time TBD).

Robin Jensen, music & education director of Opera Orlando and the director of the Opera Orlando Youth Company, explained that the regular onsite and ongoing classes will be paired with the online classes. She described two layers of virtual interactions.

First, the number of virtual students interacting via webcams with the teacher during the regular classes will be limited to 14. There is an audition process and there is only room for a few qualified students to interact real time during the ongoing classes via webcams.

Secondly, The Opera Star level is open to any kid or teenager across the United States who would like to improve their singing and acting skills. The Opera Star student will be paired in groups of 7 students in specially designed private and secured interactive channels, and there is no limit on the number of teams that can be created. Therefore, Opera Star students will watch the live opera and acting classes while interacting via webcams in their real-time password protected private channels.

Gabriel Preisser, Opera Orlando’s executive & artistic director said that the online education “enhances the Youth Company’s educational outreach to audiences beyond Central Florida.”

Ricardo Canchola, Founder of the Interactive Academy of Performing Arts (IAPA), declared that “working with an important and reputable organization such as Opera Orlando galvanizes IAPA’s goal of helping ‘Unite the World through the Performing Arts.’” Additionally, Canchola stated that IAPA will be inviting a selected number of arts organizations across the United States that could benefit from the distribution and sales of Opera Star Channels. They would then be offered a percentage, or referrals fee, from all of those students registering under their arts non-profit groups.

VYPA Corp. is IAPA’s Master System Operator (MSO) with offices in the United States, Europe and Asia. Their managing director, Vijjay Manickavasagar, stated that his company “is looking forward to working with Opera Orlando in promoting its classes in a global scale after the inaugural season of the program.”
