Greensboro Opera sponsors a number of educationally-based opera performances and opera-related events that target a variety of audiences. We are committed to making opera available to everyone in the Triad.
In collaboration with Guilford County Schools and UNCG, Greensboro Opera presents a fully-staged opera for Guilford County fifth graders at the elegant downtown Carolina Theatre.
Greensboro Opera holds a short-story writing contest for Guilford County fourth graders every spring. Selected by Greensboro Opera, the story is transformed into a libretto and then set to music by a UNCG resident composer.
Greensboro Opera received a generous special grant from ArtsGreensboro to create the Greensboro Opera Young Artist program to bring live opera/musical theatre to the Greensboro community.
For the senior citizens of the Piedmont, Greensboro Opera provides entertaining and informative courses about opera — onstage and off – at popular Triad Shepherd’s Centers.
For various organizations throughout the Triad, Greensboro Opera presents lectures, mini-performances, sneak-previews, and inside views of the opera world. Does your group or club need a colorful speaker? Contact us.
