Student Rehearsals


Let your students experience the power, beauty and grandeur of live opera by bringing them to a Student Dress Rehearsal! We invite you and your students (grades 6-12 and college) to attend a Student Dress Rehearsal. Every production is fully staged with soloists, chorus and orchestra, and takes place at Ordway. Prepare your students by using an Opera Box!
