Louisiana’s anti-bullying law has been in effect for a year. Nationwide, the number of bullying accusations has not only risen in schools, but also in sports and the workplace. The Shreveport Opera Express, the outreach program of the Shreveport Opera, has lent its powerful voice to the cause.
Since 2011, the singers have presented their “Stop, Bully” operatic program in hundreds of schools across Louisiana, east Texas and south Arkansas. Shreveport Opera executive director Amanda Gouthiere said the opera singers deliver two programs a day and reach about 50,000 people each year.
