Docent Program for Grades 3 through 12

Your classroom is coming to the opera! Arrange a visit to your classroom by one of our specially trained volunteer docents who will engage with your students to explore the world of opera, as well as introduce the opera that you’ve chosen to attend for Student Night.


The ABCs of Opera!

The ABCs of Opera! is a great preparation for elementary, middle and high school students before attending Student Night at the Opera for the first time. A combination of ABCs and See You At The Opera! with the Student Nights at the Opera Program tickets makes a complete opera education package for all students.
