Students and Schools
Engage your students in the world of opera with workshops, field trips, and special guest visitors from the Canadian Opera Company!
The COC offers students and educators accessible, creative, and educational programming for grades K through 12. From half day workshops that accompany one of our mainstage operas: Living Opera (grades 7-12), to more immersive programs that facilitate the opportunity for students to plan, create, and act in their own 15-minute opera: Opera Creation (K-12), to a behind-the-scenes backstage tour, to attending one of our Student Dress Rehearsals - we provide artistic experiences that are right for you and your students!
For Educators – If you are new to opera we support your work in the classroom by providing teacher resources which include pre and post activities for each opera. Join us for our Teachers' Nights at the COC where you can see an opera, tour backstage, and explore the elements of the art form - whether you’re an experienced music teacher, a new second-grade teacher, a high school drama teacher or anyone in between, we’d love to encourage your engagement with opera!
