Playground Opera
Education as

A Role for Everyone


Playground Opera is an opera education program that immerses your students in the production and performance of an opera. We are pleased to now offer OperaTronics, an add-on experience to our Hansel und Gretel curriculum that enhances our STEAM-based approach.

Every Playground Opera curriculum culminates in a “red-carpet event” where students get to perform, for their communities, alongside professional opera singers on the big screen! 

Designed specifically for 3rd-5th grade students, Playground Opera includes an interactive digital portal that allows teachers, parents, and caregivers to equitably facilitate arts education. Our episodic curriculum is designed to immerse students in every aspect of the creation, production and performance of an opera. Beyond passive viewing of videos, we explore innovative approaches to real-time interaction between students and our artists. Transitioning to a digital platform has allowed us to expand our reach to more schools and students. In addition, by creating new children’s productions and re-imagining canonized repertoire to amplify diverse voices, we have created opportunities for a vast array of emerging and professional artists and Teaching Artists who face barriers in traditional models of opera and arts education.
