Opera in Schools 2018-01-22T20:41:30+00:00


Education is a key component of Opera Steamboat’s mission to our community. Our education and outreach programs serve over 1,000 youth of all ages each year. Through in school programming, family friendly productions and youth-led opera choruses, Opera Steamboat is contributing to the music education of youth in our community and developing the next generation of opera enthusiasts.

Each year, Opera Steamboat partners with Opera Colorado’s Young Artists to bring opera productions to schools throughout Routt and Moffat Counties. These semi-staged costumed performances are offered to schools on a “pay what you can” basis, with many provided full scholarship assistance. The immersive experience includes activity and study guides for teachers to prepare students as well as a talk back with the performers and students following the production.

Past productions have included Bizet’s Carmen, Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love and Rossini’s The Barber of Seville & Cinderella.

The week of school programming culminates in an intimate community concert featuring the Opera Colorado Young Artists performing a diverse repertoire featuring highlights from opera and musical theater. Audience members will have the opportunity to participate in a Q & A session with performers designed to provide a unique insight into opera.
