In collaboration with Guilford County Schools and UNCG, Greensboro Opera presents a fully-staged opera for Guilford County fifth graders at the elegant downtown Carolina Theatre. The logistics of accommodating over 6,000 youngsters, who attend one of several morning performances during a three-day run, are expertly handled by our support group, Opera Companions. This collaboration also offers opportunities for Triad university singers, conductors, and musicians studying at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels to gain experience performing opera in the Carolina Theatre.
Help! Help! The Globolinks!

Because of a generous special grant from ArtsGreensboro, Greensboro Opera has created the Greensboro Opera Young Artist program, which will engage singers and a musical/dramatic staff to bring live opera/musical theatre to the Greensboro community. This will include performances and residencies in area middle and high schools, as well as retirement communities, seasonal festivals and celebrations, parks, and other public locations, increasing access to such experiences that otherwise would not occur. See the link to the story on our home page about "Music in Fashion," our first Young Artist special event at Mack and Mack!
For the senior citizens of the Piedmont, Greensboro Opera provides entertaining and informative courses about opera -- onstage and off – at popular Triad Shepherd’s Centers.
For various organizations throughout the Triad, Greensboro Opera presents lectures, mini-performances, sneak-previews, and inside views of the opera world. Does your group or club need a colorful speaker? Call us!
