History



The Children’s Chorus of the Georgian State Opera was created at the beginning of 1980s, when the premiere of Gia Kancheli’s opera “Music for the living” was being prepared.
 
Later the chorus took active part in such performances as Tosca by Giacomo Puccini, Carmen by George Bizet, Queen of Spades by Tchaikovsky, Pagliacci by Ruggiero Leoncavallo, and Attila by Guseppe Verdi.
 
At different times chorus masters Avtandil Chkhenkeli and Ketevan Shindagoridze were the leaders of the chorus.
 
In 2015 together with the renewal of the opera the number of the children’s chorus grew and besides performances solo concerts are also planned. The teaching is carried out by the famous approach of Carl Orff - known as Orff Schulwerk, which combines music, movement, drama, and speech into lessons that are similar to child's world of play.
