FINAL Dress rehearsal options 2020-21

We work very hard to accommodate schools into their first choice operas, but please be aware that total ticket numbers and limited options for younger student attendees sometimes curb our ability to do so. The earlier you register, the higher likelihood we will be able to accommodate your preferences.    

All registrations will take place on one form (see link below). Indicate whether you’d like to attend more than one opera this season. You will then select your first, second, and third choices for EACH of your final dress rehearsal attendance(s) this season, as well as the number of tickets you would like to request for each rehearsal.  

The first round of confirmations will be sent via email in early August. School groups that have not registered in time for that first deadline will be confirmed on a rolling basis.

Professional development 2020-21

At least one teacher from each Access Opera school is expected to attend a minimum of one of the following complimentary professional development options as part of their school’s participation in the program. 

Additionally, each August the Metropolitan Opera Guild hosts a week-long intensive for teachers to engage in opera creation, and apply tools and techniques learned in the process to guide students in the creation of their own operatic material in the classroom. Discounted rate available for Access Opera teachers.

The Guild is an approved sponsor of CTLE credit hours. Any NYS teacher looking to take advantage of this will be able to do so during all offered PLW sessions. Info will be provided upon registration.
