Our Teaching Artists will help your students learn and perform their parts in Figaro’s American Adventure, a kid-friendly opera based on The Barber of Seville.

Arts and education meet at our In-School Opera Remote Workshops. Five weeks spent with LA Opera artists fly by as students are transported to colonial America with Figaro and his band of sneaky barbers and colonial compatriots. (Psst…teachers can sneak in American history content with this opera.) Watch your students transform: gaining confidence, knowledge and a love of music that will stay with them for life.
