  • Lighting Workshops: learn the secrets behind creating the perfect stage ambiance.
  • Backstage Theatre Tours: get an exclusive peek behind the curtains and see what makes a production come to life.

The best part? Our workshops are incredibly flexible, designed to accommodate the unique needs of your school. We understand that schedules can be demanding, so we’re more than happy to arrange sessions outside of regular school hours.

And here’s the exciting part: these enriching workshops come to you at absolutely no cost. We’re committed to fostering a love for the arts and making opera accessible to all.
