Student Rehearsals

Let your students experience the power, beauty and grandeur of live opera by bringing them to a Student Dress Rehearsal. We invite you and your students (grades 6-12 and college) to attend a Student Dress Rehearsal. Every production is fully staged with soloists, chorus, and orchestra, and takes place at Ordway Music Theater.

Age Recommendation: 12 years and older
Run time: 2 hours, 42 minutes with one 20-minute intermission

· Name of your school

Accessibility needs

In an effort to remove financial barriers to schools, Minnesota Opera will be offering entrance to the Student Matinee Dress Rehearsal at NO COST. Registration is required. Student groups must be larger than 10 people.


Student Groups

If a Student Dress Rehearsal doesn’t fit into your schedule, attend a regular performance using the student group rate of $20 per student. This offer, for Student Groups of 10 or more (one teacher/ten students), is subject to availability. This is a great way to secure your seats to performances that will definitely sell out.
For more information or to purchase Student Group tickets, call the Ticket Office at 612-333-6669.

This Student Dress Rehearsal is sponsored by the Twin Cities Opera Guild.
