Intro to Opera

Hansel and Gretel

In accordance with Governor Kemp’s recent order to close schools through the end of the 2019-20 school year, The Atlanta Opera Studio Tour performances of Hansel and Gretel have been cancelled. Here are some additional ideas to bring Hansel and Gretel into your virtual classroom.

  • Email us to schedule a FREE virtual classroom visit with an artist from the Hansel and Gretel cast for your students
  • A wolf, deer, owl, and squirrel are featured as forest animal puppets in our production of Hansel and Gretel. Have students research forest animals and create their own forest animal puppet.
  • Encourage students to bake their own gingerbread cookies as a treat!
  • Have students direct their own Hansel and Gretel fairy tale
  • And don’t forget to check out our Educator Guide for additional activities to do with your students

After careful consideration, and with the health and safety of our patrons, staff and performers top of mind, we have decided to postpone he spring production of Madama Butterfly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Final Dress Rehearsal scheduled for April 30, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. has been cancelled. Here are some additional ideas to bring Madama Butterfly into your virtual classroom.
