Opera Theater in the Schools
Opera Theater invests heavily in educating young people, focusing on those in underserved communities, and our educational directive remains of primary importance. Working directly with schools, Opera Theater has taken opera to more than 400,000 school children. In addition, Opera Theater actively seeks opportunities to include students in productions, meeting state performance standards for direct arts experiences and creating unique partnerships with the communities and families for which we perform.
The company has an ongoing relationship with Pittsburgh's magnet school for the Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA), whose students have, over the past ten years, frequently performed and toured with the company. Opera Theater also offers open rehearsals, student matinees and in-school performances to public and private schools in and around the city of Pittsburgh, and has toured full-scale productions to a number of regional schools and universities.
