DIY Opera

During our 50th anniversary season, Edmonton Opera launched an exciting new addition to our Opera Alive Education Program: DIY Opera! 

Do-It-Yourself Opera will provide resources for your school to participate in the making of a new opera. Through workshops with members of our artistic, production and creative teams we will provide guidance throughout the 2013/14 school year with the goal of presenting the opera in 2014. The program will allow students to explore the various elements of opera including libretto writing, composition, production, performing and more. Working closely with teachers, we will tailor the program to fit your students’ needs.

This year, we will be working with Abbott School. Thank you to all the schools who submitted an application to be a part of the program. Any questions about the DIY Opera program or other educational oppportunities can be directed to
