In the Classroom

Bellissima Opera Outreach

OPERA brings together music, poetry, drama, and visual arts —a fabulous way to engage children’s mental, emotional, physical and spiritual being.

Since 2008, Bellissima Opera Outreach has presented live music to 23,000 young people from Kindergarten to 12th grade. Our seasoned and diverse professionals are soloists with some of the country’s leading opera companies and orchestras. Our program presents unamplified vocal music in a variety of genres and includes a hands-on session to engage the students in their own creativity

In Chicago and beyond, we have preferred to perform directly in the students’ classrooms. To inquire about Bellissima Opera Artists coming to your school, contact Christine Steyer at [email protected]
