Programs for Schools
There are many ways for schools and students from Kindergarten to College to get discounted access to opera performances and learning experiences:
Studio Tour – Founded in an effort to teach students throughout the state of Georgia about opera, The Atlanta Opera Studio Tour brings live performances and workshops into schools. The tour teaches introductory knowledge about opera through both performances themselves and accompanying Georgia Performance Standards materials. Recommended for grades K-12.
OPERAbility Program – Designed for a classroom of students, OPERAbility allows extensive interaction between students and artists. Sessions feature a teaching artist discussing the concept, history, and production aspects of opera. The teaching artist will perform selections of opera and include a question-and-answer period at the end of the presentation. This 30-minute presentation is available year-round for schools, camps, youth groups, and interested adults.
Student Short – Our Student Short presentations are fully-staged, abbreviated versions of mainstage productions, and feature principal artists and the Atlanta Opera Studio, Orchestra and Chorus. Carefully selected highlights are threaded together, providing students the performance experience at the Cobb Energy Centre. Recommended for grades 6-12. Presented in collaboration with ArtsBridge.
