What is Student Night at the Opera?

A sneak preview of the production: the excitement of live opera with costumes, sets, full make-up and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.

An opportunity to see opera in the making.

The rehearsal is open to school bands and choirs, private music students, drama students or any other group of interested students. 

Please note: As the artists are in final preparation for Opening Night, some may not sing in full voice.

Why Opera?

Opera is a great teaching tool; explore geography, history, math, other cultures and languages through opera.

Opera fosters an appreciation for music, theatre and the arts that will last a lifetime.

Opera challenges and expands critical thinking and comprehension skills.

Will my students understand the opera?

English translations (surtitles) are projected above the stage. This allows students to enjoy opera in its original language, while still having complete comprehension of the story.

Manitoba Opera provides a Study Guide free of charge that will provide you with ideas on incorporating opera into your regular curriculum.
