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!

Educator Discount for Student Groups

If a Student Dress Rehearsal doesn’t fit into your schedule, attend a regular performance using the Educator Discount of 50% off regular ticket prices. This offer, for Student Groups of 10 or more (one teacher/ten students), is subject to availability. This is a great way to secure your seats to performances that will definitely sell out.
