As the state opera company for Queensland, our mission is to bring opera to all Queensland students, regardless of where you live.
For more than 15 years, Opera Queensland has enabled thousands of school students right across Queensland to enjoy their first experience of opera.
Having reached as far as north as Normanton and west to Mount Isa, Windorah, and Longreach, Opera Queensland offers a dedicated program for primary and high school students to introduce and nurture students’ understanding of opera.
From touring productions to online tools, school children and teachers right across Queensland can experience the joy of opera.
All our resources are linked to Australian Curriculum General Capabilities and Learning Areas and include activities that can be used in the classroom, alongside or separate to watching the production.
Our School Tours offer teachers and students all over Queensland a fun and creative educational experience.
Participating schools enjoy:
- Resources including a teachers’ support pack
- Pre-production discussions with our music and learning experts
- A day-long workshop with our team of arts educators and performers
- A performance to enjoy with family, friends and schoolmates
We will launch our season and release our full range of events and activities for 2021 on Saturday 28 November.
