Hello Friends in Education

For the safety of our students, teachers and communities, we have created completely virtual programs to be shared with your students.

For the remainder of 2020 – 2021 Season, we are temporarily replacing our in-class engagements with a programming where the students learn about singing, opera history, and then create their own opera scenes at home or in your virtual classrooms.

Please enjoy this Highlight Reel of our virtual offerings.

MetroPelican Opera

The education/outreach wing of the New Orleans Opera Association, was founded in 1988 by Arthur Cosenza. He chose Metro to represent the 7-parish population base of New Orleans, and Pelican for the state bird. MetroPelican has subsequently toured throughout Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas.

You can help the New Orleans Opera Education Department reach even more people in our community.
