Opera Inside Out” opens with an all-new show presented by Central City Opera’s Education and Community Programs titled Eureka Street, performed by the Central City Opera Ensemble Artists to introduce opera concepts and examples of opera. The program will progress with age appropriate activities (for 5-12 year olds) and a tour of the historic Central City Opera House, including views from all areas of the intimate 550-seat space.

The learning opportunities continue with a backstage tour that includes the orchestra pit and the adjoining “Cast House” with views of the singer’s dressing rooms, the costume shop and the wig and make-up studios. Through this up-close experience, children and adults alike can heighten their appreciation of opera as well as enhance their operatic understanding.
