It's in our mission!
When we first founded POP in 2011, we made a dedication to reach new opera audiences though both performance and education. POP's education programs and community events are adaptable, engaging, and fit for any setting. Every learner is welcome!

MY FIRST OPERA
AN 8-WEEK PROGRAM
GRADE LEVELS: K-12
My First Opera exposes learners of all ages to the many elements of opera and musical theater. The program begins with introductory lessons on opera, followed by fun and engaging social-emotional activities where students create new opera characters and write an original libretto. Students also learn unique, grade-level appropriate skills in stage production, including costuming and set design.
Join POP as we guide students through both on-stage and behind-the-scenes creative exploration through this fun and vibrant education program!
A 6-WEEK PROGRAM
GRADE LEVELS: K-5
Opera Explorers gives a special, kid-friendly look into a current, on-stage POP production. Kindergarten through 5th grade students learn the basic elements of opera through a deep dive into the story, music, and production of an upcoming POP show. With each lesson in this six-week series, we learn more and more about the show to prepare for the grand finale - tickets to the live performance!
