being taken away from them.”
State Opera SA is committed to building awareness, appreciation and participation in high-quality opera experiences through a variety of targeted education programs and content. Our school engagement programs are associated with our main stage productions and tailored to suit specific school groups.
Having the opportunity to experience the wonders of operatic music is a great way for children of all ages to engage and interact with opera professionals and some of the best creative arts industry personnel South Australia has to offer.
When children experience opera, they grasp so much more – theatre, dance, singing, drama, art, design and fun! Opera tells stories that resonate with any generation; it’s about their development, extending their imagination and broadening their experiences as they grow.
State Opera SA can develop tailored programs for a variety of large school groups and offer open rehearsal opportunities for smaller school groups where students can see how a main stage opera rehearsal is conducted and gain an understanding of the many different elements required to bring an opera together.
State Opera SA is also able to undertake a variety of School Workshops with the aim to create opportunities for artistically talented children to be identified and given guidance and assistance, should they wish to develop their arts training further.
