Resource Materials

Welcome to San Francisco Opera's Tales of Hoffmann Education website! We are providing you with a vast amount of Resource Materials and a list of Curriculum Connections, which are organized by content area and will continue to be updated. You now have access to plenty of ideas for how to connect the dress rehearsal of Tales of Hoffmann to your curriculum – for multiple learning goals of Grade 4 through 12 students. We hope that you and your students enjoy the experience of opera in your classroom!

We are interested to hear how you have chosen to implement these materials with your class. Please contact us to share ideas, as well as if you have any questions or suggestions, by email at education@sfopera.com. Enjoy!
