Bring Your Students to the Opera and Make Career Connections
Opera Prep combines the opportunity to see one of LA Opera's productions and experience a behind-the-scenes encounter with one of the many careers that bring the productions to the stage, for free. Teachers may choose to apply to bring their students to a final dress rehearsal (or performance) for one of LA Opera's mainstage, world-class operas. LA Opera will assist teachers in preparing their students and chaperones through an in-service seminar. Teachers will receive an educators' guide, a CD and/or DVD of the opera, cross-curriculum activities and a visit by a member of LA Opera's Community Educators program.
