Access All Areas: Alice through the Opera Glass Livestream Program (Vic Regional)

Victorian Opera


"We have a very small school so we included the entire school in this program. The children were engaged in this program every week, even the children we didn't expect to be engaged were loving it. Thank you for this fantastic experience!"
Teacher, Indigo

"Our school is remote. Many families would not have the opportunity to travel to Melbourne for such a performance. I think that it was a wonderful opportunity for children to experience theatre/opera."
Principal, Orbost

Peer into the magic looking glass and come on a fantastical journey with Alice and the White Rabbit. Leave Wonderland behind and step into an alternative opera universe, a marvellous world for curious minds that will fascinate students and teachers alike.

An imagination as abundant as our heroine’s is a pre-requisite for this adventure that leaps across boundaries of opera time and space. Follow Alice and the White Rabbit through the corridors of time to meet famous characters from your favourite operas in this wonderfully creative pastiche, which includes music from Bizet, Delibes and Puccini.

Receive four interactive workshops and a performance of Alice through the Opera Glass livestreamed directly into the classroom when you register your students to participate in Victorian Opera's Access All Areas: Livestream Program. Students will learn about the process of producing an opera, including character creation, set and prop design and how the production moves from the rehearsal room to the stage.

Please note: Sections of this production will be sung in French, Italian and German with English scene descriptors.

The Access All Areas: Livestream Program is easily accessed online with all four workshops and the performance of Alice through the Opera Glass available later on-demand for repeat viewing.

This program is supported by downloadable curriculum-aligned classroom resources and activities tailored to each workshop. Available in April 2019 via the Victorian Opera Education Resource webpage.
