Opera Studies: School Tour

From the end of April through to the middle of May, the Marcel A. Desautels Faculty of Music takes an opera production, created specifically for young people, on tour to approximately 30 schools in Manitoba. This annual school tour is an important part of opera at the University of Manitoba as it not only provides performing experience for advanced voice students but also supports arts education in the province and helps to develop a future audience for opera. The production is double cast with selected students from both the graduate and undergraduate programs.
