WNO Education Programs

Washington National Opera provides numerous opportunities for students of all ages to experience opera!

The Opera Look-In introduces elementary and middle school students to behind-the-scenes magic of opera including topics such as lighting design, scene changes, stage tricks, musical themes, and more. The Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program is designed for emerging adult artists on the verge of international careers.  WNO ticket holders are also invited to attend pre-performance lectures before selected performances as well as post-performance Q&A's after Sunday matinees and Monday evening performances.

Resources from the Washington National Opera are also incorporated into other education programs of the Kennedy Center.  Please visit
