Accepting yourself, accepting those around you, and changing the world around you.
This season, Opera Columbus, will be creating a new virtual path for schools to have more access to our Education program. Our premiere of “Opera in A Dropbox” will showcase Cinderella and will feature a FREE program with a play for the students to develop their acting skills, accompanied by musical tracks with a lead character hosting the show.
In this new adaptation of the classic fairytale, Cinderella overcomes her circumstances and transforms into the person she was always meant to be… which is who she was all along! Featuring new twists, this timeless tale of kindness, love, and self-realization is sure to enchant young—and young at heart—audiences of all ages.

Is there a limit to the number of slots I can reserve?
Yes, there will be a limit of 2 slots per teacher/educator. At this time we would like to accommodate the most students and schools that we can. If you would like additional slots, please let us know to add you the wait list.
What if I have hybrid A and B groups of students?
As the limit per teacher/educator is 2, the hybrid model should be accommodated accordingly.
Can I choose a different program for each of the two slots?
Yes. You may choose to use both slots for the K-2 program, the 3-6th grade program, or have one of each.
When will we find out when we will get additional slots?
These will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Our Education Scheduler will be reaching out to you in December if we have open slots.
Is there a deadline to reserve a slot?
Yes, we are currently asking for reservations until December 18, 2020. We may extend the deadline, if needed.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with school information, version option, and date you would like to schedule. Our education scheduler will be in touch to confirm date and time of zoom call.
