Opera to Elementary School Kids

Arbor Opera Theater (AOT)  is a professional opera company with three main objectives: 

1.  To cultivate new and diverse audiences by including special programming for children
2.  To foster the careers of emmerging operatic talent
3.  To evolve the social conscience through new and challenging productions

From March 1-4, 2018 AOT is presenting Puccini's Tosca at the Power Center in Ann Arbor.  As a part of this production, school children from Washtenaw and Wayne Counties will have the opportunity to attend a one hour educational adaptation of this work.  Aimed specifically at 4th and 5th graders, this production features full orchestra, professional opera singers, and special behind-the-scenes glimpses of technical stagecraft.  

Sadly,  live opera programs have been absent in our communties' schools for nearly 20 years.  With your support, we can bring back quality arts programming to school children in Washtenaw and western Wayne counties.

As an added bonus, we have an anonymous donor who will match every dollar you give--dollar for dollar!
