Participating colleges and universities (which pay an annual fee to participate) receive study materials and free lectures (on campus or pre-performance) by request. Up to 50 students per application from member colleges or universities may attend each dress rehearsal. 2012/13 operas are: Simon Boccanegra by Giuseppe Verdi, La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini, and Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi.
