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.
