at the opera

Piedmont Opera is committed to increasing student access to opera while deepening students’ engagement with the art form. Through our traveling elementary school opera, to our partnership with Crosby Scholars and The Piedmont Youth Chorus, students and educators across North Carolina have the opportunity to experience live opera at little or no cost.

Students receive 20% off our regular ticket prices in sections B & C to all of our main stage performances.

Out of an abundance of caution, Student Night (our final dress rehearsal) is only open to Crosby Scholars, thanks to generous support from Pricewaterhousecoopers.

In the future, all tickets for our following student programs can be made by calling the Box Office at 336.725.7101. Student/educator discounts are not online. You must call the office and be prepared to show your student ID when you arrive at the theatre.

Each year, Piedmont Opera and the A.J. Opera Institute travel to schools across North Carolina to give students a taste of opera while teaching important moral lessons. The opera is performed by graduate level students of the A.J. Fletcher Opera Institute of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.


The cost of this performance is $150 per performance. Contact Piedmont Opera to schedule this event at your school.
