For the second year in a row Karpos has designed and run the stop motion animation workshops for junior high students. The students are introduced to the art of Opera through the works presented at the Greek National Opera and funded by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. This year the source of inspiration for the the animation short that will be created at the end of the workshops are ''The Marriage of Figaro'' by Mozart and a triptych ''From Russia with Love'' based on the works of Stravinsky! Kicking off with musical excerpts from the classical and modern opera repertoire, and studying selected excerpts from opera libretti, students -supported by skilled visual artists/workshop facilitators- will create their own multimedia narratives. The workshops round off with each school producing short, original animation films
The final event of the project is on May 5th where we are planning to present the films from all the schools!
