EDUCATION

Offering a variety of educational programs, we strive to enrich the minds and broaden the horizons of students from Pre-K all the way through the 12th grade.

Studies show that a positive experience with arts education not only encourages a lifelong relationship with the arts, but often opens windows of curiosity that lead to a new enthusiasm and discipline for learning in general. Fort Worth Opera and Children’s Opera Theatre are dedicated to expanding the horizons of young people across the state of Texas, with concentrated efforts across the North Texas area. Since 1966, Fort Worth Opera has opened millions of young minds to the colorful and exciting world of opera.

We will have student group discounts available to our regular performances in 2022-23. Groups must have a minimum of 10 students to qualify. Please call the box office for details. Student groups will be subject to the same safety protocols at check in to which our adult patrons adhere.
