Access All Areas

Take your students behind the scenes with Victorian Opera’s productions through livestreamed workshops and performances.


Ever seen inside a costume department or an orchestra pit? Curious about how sets and props are created? What happens behind the curtain before it goes up?

Access All Areas takes your students on a journey into the world of opera without leaving the classroom. Students will learn about the process of producing opera, including character creation, set and prop design and how the production goes from rehearsal to performance in a series of online interactive workshops.

Schools across all corners of the state can experience backstage footage and performances livestreamed direct to the classroom. Workshops will also be available on-demand enabling access anytime.

Begin your Access All Areas experience with Victorian Opera’s Hansel and Gretel, available from May to June in 2018. Aligned with Australian Curriculum Learning Areas in The Arts, English, Languages and Technologies and supported by classroom resources and activities.

The program is tailored according to your school’s distance from Arts Centre Melbourne. Choose from an option below to find out more.
