At the conclusion of the 2018-19 Season we are taking the opportunity to review and make changes to our existing Education programs.

We look forward to sharing new strategies for engaging young audiences and request that you follow our Education page below as we announce new programs.

Opera in Eight Parts

A digital series of 8 episodes guiding viewers through the history and development of the operatic art form, from its beginnings in the 1600’s to the present day. The digital series is available in two packages of four episodes, each approximately one hour in length. Access is $20 for each package.


Student Dress Rehearsal

Each year Lyric Opera of Kansas City invites students to attend a final dress rehearsal at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, where they will be enthralled by the music and drama of the opera!


Lyric Preludes (NEW)

Invite our Resident Artists into your classroom for a live performance and a preview of one of our productions. Pair this classroom visit with participation in our Student Dress Rehearsal program, or simply enjoy it as a window into the world of opera itself.


Opera: Up Close & Personal

In this completely customizable 45-minute classroom workshop, a professional opera singer, Lyric Opera staff member and a pianist visit the class for a close-up look at an aspect of opera that is of interest to the class.
