Education Program

Opera Out of the Box is an engaging and entertaining opera education program created specifically for school-aged audiences. Offering every student the opportunity to learn about the art form of classical song, the 45-minute presentation corresponds with North Carolina’s Standard Course of Study. 


Grades K-12
Length: 45 Minutes

This interactive presentation introduces students to “opera’s greatest hits.” Four singers, representing the main operatic voice types, perform arias, duets and ensembles from CARMEN, THE MAGIC FLUTE, RIGOLETTO and other well-known operas. Using MadLibs, students “compose” a scene to learn about recitative, or the opera dialogue. The program concludes with “Is it Opera?,” a quiz in which the singers present famous tunes often heard in commercial media.
