Opera for Educators

September 7 2019 – May 30, 2020

At the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

Are you ready to rethink the role of the arts in your classroom?

Opera for Educators invites you to explore the operas appearing onstage at LA Opera. We have experts in music, history, languages and—of course—opera, ready to work with you to integrate opera into your classrooms. No study of opera is complete without the music, so we have LA Opera artists perform selections from each opera at every session. Gorgeous live music, experts discussing the latest in arts scholarship…sounds like a perfect Saturday to us.

Things to know:

  • LAUSD salary points and UCLA extension credit are available. (Learn more about Salary Points and view our Homework Menu.) 
  • Seven sessions—including an arts integration day
  • Sessions are Saturdays from 9am to 3pm at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
  • Classes do not include admission to mainstage opera productions.
