ABOUT OPERA AUSTRALIA'S SCHOOLS TOUR
Every year, Opera Australia performs to 80,000 primary school children throughout Victoria and NSW.
It's always a big event. Opera Australia arrives at the start of the school day, complete with opera costumes, sets, four singers and a pianist. They need about 40 minutes to set up in your hall (or any large space), then they are ready to perform.
The schools tour presents up to three sessions in a day, and each session consists of a 50-minute performance of a complete opera followed by 10 minutes of questions and answers with the students and teachers.
Preparation and follow-up is all part of the experience: when you book you receive an Opera Australia teacher resource pack. This includes suggestions for classroom extension activities both before and after the opera incursion.
