Education and Outreach

Opera Atelier works with over 1000 young people annually through our various workshops and guest instructing opportunities. Our goal is for participants in our programs to leave with a greater understanding of our particular art form, a deeper investment in the arts generally and our company specifically, and the feeling of empowerment that comes from learning in, through, and about the arts.

By offering the majority of these programs free of charge, Opera Atelier aims to be as inclusive as possible, providing students from all backgrounds a real participatory opportunity that might not otherwise be possible. Please email us at for more information.
