The Motor City Lyric Opera performed "The Billy Goats Gruff" for George Crockett Academy elementary students in April. It was reported as very entertaining, as well as containing several overt anti-bullying messages that the students seemed to pick up on easily. The director and cast also provided a "talk-back" wrap session following the performance to reinforce the principles in the performance.
"Personally, I get excited when our young students are exposed to new and positive experiences. They also have the layered lessons from this activity to reflect upon," said Ms. Lenora Martin, counselor at George Crockett Academy.
