Music and Drama at Lago del Bosco

Music and Dance

Music is the beating heart of Italy! And with regional differences creating a great deal of variety, a lively tradition of music, dance, drama and cinema abounds. At Lago del Bosco, we use singing throughout the day to teach new expressions. Songs are often simple and help new villagers expand their vocabulary. You’ll also learn traditional Italian dances such as the tarantella--or just dance to modern Europop at our discoteca!

The city of Florence staged the first full opera in 1597 and it was a hit. Operatic singing began as a distinct style of communicating stories that were more melodic and dramatic than speaking. Italian became the language of opera and even Mozart was envious of Rossini, the Italian composer, so he wrote his own Italian-inspired operas.
