The program includes student trips to the Civic Opera House to attend the dress rehearsals of the operas they study. A professional development workshop will be held for participating teachers and teaching artists. 2012/13 operas are: Elektra by Richard Strauss, Hansel & Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck, and Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi.
