School Residency

Turn your school, grade level or participating classrooms into an Opera Production Company!

The Opera Residency program has become an annual learning program for the schools and its success shows.

The HOT Residency program is available for elementary, middle and high schools. Our opera education team leads your students and teachers through the process of producing and performing an opera.

Participants have the opportunity to experience a backstage tour and a professional grand opera at the Neal Blaisdell Concert Hall, plus your school gets a visit from HOT Opera Express, HOT’s Education staff, and more.

The program is a great interactive tool for integrating arts into your curriculum through the art of opera. In addition to its foundation in literature, opera offers multiple opportunities for tie-ins to math and other core subjects. The program can be a great complement to Core Curriculum goals.

If you would like your school to be considered for the program, please call Erik at 596-7372 extension 207 for more information or e-mail him at
