Opera Alive encourages music and arts to be an integral part of learning for students of all ages. Downloadable education guides, school visits and field trips to the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium during a dress rehearsal allow students to explore the art form while using their imagination and thinking critically. For classroom visits, special guests will speak, sing and introduce elements of opera in a creative way. A limited number of complimentary visits are offered throughout the season. Students can also participate in the making of an opera with our new education program, DIY Opera.
Bring your class to experience opera first hand! Education dress rehearsal dates are available to school group bookings for subsidized pricing starting at only $10. All performances will have English supertitles. Schools requiring funding assistance are encouraged to apply for support through our Ensemble! program.
