Introducing SCHOLASTIX

Inspiring Audiences Of Tomorrow Today

We are excited to launch ScholasTIX which will provide bus transportation to Student Night at the Opera for San Diego area students, grades 3-12 and underwrite the cost of tickets for college students eager to attend Main Stage opera performances.

San Diego Opera creates amazing opera, but did you know that San Diego Opera is also dedicated to enriching the lives of San Diego area students through high quality, accessible arts education in the classroom and on stage? Here are a few statistics:

  • San Diego Opera’s education programs serve over 10,000 students per year.
  • Last year 7,500 students in Grades 3-12 from 186 participating San Diego schools attended Student Night at      the Opera – a dress rehearsal complete with sets, costumes, singers, and the San Diego Symphony - free of      charge.
  • For the last three seasons, over 2,000 reduced-price tickets were made available to university students.

  • Please make a year-end tax-deductible donation to San Diego Opera’s ScholasTIX! Just look at the impact of your gift:
  • $100 funds Main Stage performance tickets for four college-age students.
  • $300 to $600 allows 12 to 24 students to attend an SDO Main Stage performance as a classroom group.
  • $1,000 provides bus transportation for students to attend a live opera performance.

  • Help develop our future audiences by donating to the new ScholasTIX program. Your investment will inspire the next generation to embrace opera and the arts. With your assistance, the youth of our community will become a driving force that supports San Diego Opera to its 100th Season and beyond.
