Education Resources

Victorian Opera creates a wide range of education resources to help introduce and develop students' understanding of the world of opera.

Our education resources are full of general background, as well as information specific to operas which the company performs. They give access to creative processes involved in staging certain operas. Each resource is linked to the Victorian Curriculum, as appropriate to the intended audience. Education activities to be conducted before, during and after your visit are also included.

The resources are designed to assist students and teachers to get the most from their opera experience.
