Terms of Participation

Deadlines and Information

Applications for all Opera Prep events are open until the event reaches capacity. To find out if applications are still being accepted, please email or call 213-972-3105 to speak with Ben Howard, Education Associate.
Application and lesson plan will be reviewed by LA Opera staff and accepted or returned for revision.
Tentative acceptances will be emailed roughly two months prior to the opera.
Once all available seats are committed, applications for that opera will be closed.
We recognize that each teacher's situation is unique, and the number or chaperones teachers need to bring to the event will vary depending on school policies, students, their parents, transportation, and other factors.
LA Opera requires AT LEAST one chaperone for every 10 students. Teachers requiring a higher student/chaperone ratio should explain their circumstances on the application.
If selected, teacher will attend the corresponding, mandatory in-service workshop listed on this application. If the teacher does not attend, s/he may need to forfeit all tickets to the performance
The school is responsible for arranging and paying for transportation to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Classes will be seated by random drawing. LA Opera reserves the right to refuse schools on the basis of past behavior or attendance problems.
Please be realistic about the number of tickets you request. If significantly more tickets are requested than used, you may not be invited to apply for other Opera Prep events.
I acknowledge reading the above information and agree to the terms of participation.
I understand that I will need to attend the in-service workshop or I will forfeit all tickets to the performance.
I understand that my application is incomplete until my lesson plan is submitted.
My principal is aware of this application and supports this trip to LA Opera.
In order to apply, teachers must submit one original lesson plan PER OPERA and attend the in-service. Send to with the subject: "Lesson Plan, Opera Prep (include name of opera)."
