Education & Community Engagement

A core mission of The Atlanta Opera is to provide educational opportunities for students of all ages. Each year, we serve approximately 17,000 students in Metro-Atlanta and throughout the state of Georgia. Our programs seek to promote an enduring appreciation of opera and to create audiences for the future.


 Founded in 1980 to teach students about opera, Studio Tour productions travel to schools and community venues across the state of Georgia each season.


The Atlanta Opera invites students and educators to select Final Dress Rehearsals at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre during the 2018-19 season.


Workshops offer students a “hands-on” opera experience and allow extensive interaction between students and artists.
