Experience an orchestra tech rehearsal for free.

For each show, the orchestra tech rehearsal is the magic moment when all of the elements come together onstage for the first time. Singers are onstage in their costumes, the orchestra is in the pit and an army of technicians are backstage—the show is ready to begin and you can be a part of the magic. This unique experience is open to students in all college departments—after all, opera is the definition of interdisciplinary learning (because it's got literally everything going on).
