Opera Parallèle develops and performs contemporary operas, engaging audiences in a compelling new culture of dramatic vocal works. Their multi-faceted interactive educational programs target a broad range of students from elementary to high school age with a specific focus on schools in underserved communities whose students have limited access to the arts.
Under the guidance of Opera Parallèle’s professional staff and artistic team and supervised by the Educational Programs Director Roma Olvera, the program recruits music students and young artists from the San Francisco Bay Area to share their skills, knowledge, and leadership with partnering schools, enabling students to fully experience contemporary opera.
“Sunday afternoon’s performance was a small miracle of theatrical inventiveness and musical delight.” -Joshua Kosman, The San Francisco Chronicle
