Although we are unable to visit Virginia’s schools in person during the 2020-2021 season, we are excited to be able to offer a variety of fun and educational content, free of charge to all of the Commonwealth’s educators and students.

Virginia Opera will be offering a variety of exciting and educational online content for K-12 students. All programs feature professional singers employed in the Emerging Artist Program, accompanied by piano. The children’s operas are fully produced for film in order to provide a fun, engaging viewing experience. Study guides are available for these full-length programs.

ABOUT VIRGINIA OPERA’S TOURING PROGRAM

2020-2021 marks Virginia Opera’s milestone 46th season of commitment to education. The Opera Education Program includes acclaimed education and outreach activities that began shortly after the company’s founding in 1975.

Each year, Virginia Opera’s Education In-School Touring Program travels state wide to offer more than 120,000 children and adults of all ages imaginative, informative, and entertaining programs. From children’s operas to concerts, lectures, master classes and workshops, Virginia Opera is committed to bringing live operatic experiences to venues beyond the opera house and into communities across the Commonwealth.

The Opera give mainstage performances in three regional markets—Hampton Roads, Central Virginia, and Northern Virginia—and in 1994 was recognized by the Virginia General Assembly as The Official Opera Company of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
