Not every visitor Opera House knows that pleasant voice that sounds from the stage before the show belongs educator vospitalnoy work, which in a break between the acts of working with children, offering them a draw already seen. We decided to talk with one of the experts, Elena Leonidovna, asking her to our questions. Dytyna.Info: Elena, many parents wondering at what age should begin a visit to the Opera House? EL .: With intrauterine (laughs). We had a case when a pregnant woman came to the shows, and then we met her already with a baby in her arms, she even fed him in the theater building - seen in this sense. Because we say that the performances of the theater are designed for an audience from zero to a hundred years old - come to us and a group of pensioners. Frankly, in this case, age does not play a special role. It all depends on the child's development. Physiologically young children hard to sit in one place for an hour, it has a length of the first act. However, if the parents decided to bring her baby to the idea, they should prepare it. Dytyna.Info: Elena, what methods of training children to attend the theater there? EL .: Everything is easier than you think. For example, we read the story, which is based on the performance delivered. This allows the child to perceive it better. If the child is familiar with the plot of the fairy tale, it will be pleasantly surprised by its revival at the theater. At the same time, it is important to explain to the child that the performance - not one hundred percent transfer of a fairy tale story to the stage, and the artistic vision of the composer, choreographer and director. Before the beginning of the performance, we tell children that our theatrical story unusual, not like the fact that they had previously seen or read. Dytyna.Info: Our readers are very important to know how the theater affects the development of the child? EL .: First of all, develop a culture of theater, the artistic level of the request, as well as form the taste. A child brought up on a quality academic art, is demanding the audience in a good way. Dytyna.Info: And where better to start? On a visit to the ballet or opera? EL .: The smallest I recommend to start with a musical fairy tales. They are intertwined dialogues, songs, music, dances. The next step - to view the ballet performances such as "The Humpbacked Horse" and "Thumbelina". And at the age of 4 years old kid can be interesting opera "Ivasik-Telesyk" or "Little Red Riding Hood." I note, however, if we are talking about opera in general, the child is not always ready to accept only the vocals. Professional opera staged for children requires an excellent diction and articulation of actors. The child should be able to perceive both music and words. Dytyna.Info: Frankly, I do not know many people who love opera. Why do you think? imagenes de buenas noches amor EL .: I'm definitely not ready to answer this question. In fact, it is the parents lay the basis for the child preferences, unfortunately, often imposing their own. Is a known fact that in the last century, our society is culturally affected were lost many values. Grammotno modern parent should inform their child with the existing arts and provide a choice that prefer musical, opera or ballet. In our theater was the index case, when a frequent visitor - Pope five year old boy, wrote in the guest book: "You offer excellent performances, but the children ballet less clear than the musical fairy tale. Please review the repertoire in favor of the latter." After graduating from a ballet performance, I went to the boy and asked him if he liked the idea of what the kid replied, "Yes, very much!". Then I decided to learn from: "A pope like ballet?" - And received the answer: "But Dad was asleep." I think that comment is superfluous. Dytyna.Info: Elena, in conclusion, I want to ask you what would you like to say to our readers - parents who bring their children to the theater? EL: With pleasure I will pay attention to some ethical aspects. There are times when play has ended, the entire troupe of actors going on stage, the audience applaud them, and some parents with children are moving toward the exit. It is important to understand that the play ends only when the light is turned on in the hall. To bring up a child from a grateful person should explain how the actors on stage will know that you liked the play to the audience. The best praise and gratitude for them are the audience applause.
