Students and Schools
Get your students into opera with workshops, field trips, and special guest visitors from the Canadian Opera Company!
The COC makes it easy for teachers and schools to present accessible, fun, and educational programming for their students and classes. From the Opera Creation (K-12) program that provides students with the opportunity to plan, create, and act in their own 15-minute opera, or Living Opera (grades 7-12) a half day workshop to introduce your students to opera and prepare them for a performance, to our Custom Workshops (K-post secondary) that will provide your students with exactly what they need, we have a program that will suit your students.
You can also see behind the scenes into the fascinating activities that make the arts happen with Building Tours (all ages), or attending a COC Mainstage Dress Rehearsal.
With so many programs for students and schools, we want to make sure that teachers have all of the resources they need. The COC provides teacher resources for our operas and activities so they can be easily integrated into your curriculum. We also have special Teachers' Nights at the COC where you can see an opera, go backstage, and get resources for your classroom. Opera is for everyone, and whether you’re an experienced music teacher, a new second-grade teacher, a high school drama teacher or anyone in between, we’d love help you bring opera to your students.
