Opera: Up Close & Personal

A customized operatic experience

Photo by Aaron LindbergOpera: Up Close & Personal is a completely customizable 45-minute workshop for classrooms up to 50 students. During the program, a professional opera singer, Lyric Opera staff member and a pianist visit the class for a close-up look at any aspect of opera that is of interest to the class. Students enjoy a live performance from the singer and pianist featuring music from productions in the current Lyric Opera season. The students then learn about any area of interest – wigs and make-up, life as an opera singer, scenic and costume design, backstage careers in the arts, and more.

Opera: Up Close & Personal is the most flexible arts education experience; it can be tailored for students in grades K-12, college students, or adult community groups. The workshop is $295 for one session or $425 for two sessions.

To book for your class call the Lyric Opera Education Department at 816.471.4933 or contact us.
