Inspired by HGO’s Transforming the Mind & Spirit: An Exploration of Creativity event, we will continue the journey through our Seeking the Human Spirit Initiative in fall 2019.

This new course will provide participants opportunities to discover and cultivate a variety of creative practices while collectively producing an original work of art based on the initiative’s theme IDENTITY. Singing, song composition, improvisatory acting, creative writing, and expressive movement sessions led by industry professionals will take participants through the creative process.

This course also includes access to mainstage dress rehearsals of HGO’s fall repertoire (Rigoletto and Saul) and a backstage tour. A final presentation of the created work, presented prior to the final dress rehearsal of Saul, completes this engaging learning adventure.

No previous experience required.
