The Dix Mois d’Ecole et d’Opéra (“Ten Months School and Opera”) program, created 30 years ago by the Opéra de Paris in partnership with the National Education Ministry, continues its evolution taking into account the axes of development of the Academy: transversality, plurality of practices and accessibility. Its basic premise is that of allowing all students to embrace their citizenship to the full.
To accompany the thousands of students cut off from certain forms of art and culture, for the most part from Priority Education networks, the Dix Mois d’Ecole et d’Opéra programmes offers many classes, accompanied by educational teams engaged in the field of artistic education and cultural action, the opportunity to build two-year projects that are as many unique courses contributing to success and development of the pupils.
From kindergarten to high school, through elementary school and college, they are able to explore a new universe whilst making the link with the programmes of the disciplines taught.
To highlight the progress made, the pupils learn to share the results of their multiple educational activities. They report regularly on their findings and offer exhibitions, screenings, renditions or performances to other classes, families or even the whole school or other institutions. These varied events are situations in which a shared reflection can emerge allow everyone to have a better understanding of the objectives and issues corresponding to the activities carried out.
The program is continually evolving. This season it will be extend to Corsica, Bretagne and an excellence training program: the “Petits violons” (little violins) class and the Dance class.
