Access Opera offers free tickets to students, parents and teachers to attend Austin Opera dress rehearsals at The Long Center for the Performing Arts. Prior to each rehearsal, TEKS-aligned Study Guides are available to prepare students for the experience of attending the opera. Students see and hear the work with an enhanced appreciation that helps create a deeper relationship for the art form. Access Opera is often the first opportunity for many participants to experience live opera.
Austin Opera docents are available to speak to your school group of 25 or more during the month leading up to each dress rehearsal. Docents talk about attending what it is like to attend the opera, and provide a historical and cultural context for the opera students will see.
