Access to Opera: Making it Simple

The Canadian Opera Company prides itself on its commitment to breaking down barriers to opera across all age groups: children can create their own operas with the Scotiabank After School Opera Program and Scotiabank Summer Opera Camps; youth can speak directly with artists and attend rehearsals through Youth Opera Lab; workshops and tours go directly into schools; and adults can connect with opera on another level through Opera Insights, Pre-performance Opera Chats, and Opera Talks. In addition, Opera Under 30, presented by TD, offers opera lovers under the age of 30 tickets to mainstage productions for $22.

Without education and outreach programs like these, your favourite singers might not have discovered their love of opera. We recently spoke with rising star and COC Ensemble Studio member Lauren Eberwein about her initial experience with this art form, as well as opinion on how to make opera fun and accessible.

The Opera That Changed My Life: Ring Cycle Rendezvous


Taking on Wagner's Ring Cycle is no easy task. With approximately 16 hours of musical intensity, intricate character development, and striking leitmotifs, this is truly an epic operatic endeavour.
