Showcasing operatic performances since 1972, the Arizona Opera offers local schools and classes several unique opportunities through which students can learn more about the historic art form. This year, students in elementary school can attend Rusalka: The Littlest Mermaid, a Russian adaptation of The Little Mermaid fairytale.

Starting in August, schools in the Tucson and Phoenix areas can request specific operas to perform on campus for the 2016-2017 academic year. This year’s Tucson tour will run from September to December 16, 2016, while the Phoenix tour will be held from the end of January until May 12, 2017.
