Both Hands-on-Opera and Engage-in-Opera lead to Invitation-to-Opera where schools from all over the San
Francisco Bay Area are invited to attend the final dress rehearsal of an Opera Parallèle production free of charge.
- Introduces students to the cultural themes and musical complexity of contemporary opera.
- Cultivates a young person’s relationship with live art.
- The working atmosphere of a dress rehearsal gives students an opportunity to be on the inside of the process of producing an opera
- Formality of full-scale lighting and costumes in the venue also gives the students an opportunity to practice traditional decorum in a theater.
