AWARD-WINNING. INTERACTIVE. IMMERSIVE.
We believe that participation in the performing arts leads to deep appreciation of beauty and diverse points of view. Our programs help young people grow into curious and caring citizens with a strong sense of self and empathy for others.

After our great Italian adventure in April, 2018, this cultural and performing arts ensemble for teens enters its fourth year with exciting opportunities to sing, learn, attend performances, and travel!
From September to May, we hold weekly meetings, master classes and workshops, perform at recitals and community events and attend performances all over the Bay Area.
Students engage with beloved classics of the repertoire, building confidence and self-expression while exploring a panorama of colorful characters and engaging stories.
Inspiring 10 to 14 week residencies bring out the creative artist in all students, allowing them to engage with their curricula, communities and one another in meaningful ways. We can also hold residencies in high school classrooms.
In these intensive, hands-on programs, students develop skills as singers and actors as they rehearse and perform operatic repertoire tailored to fit young voices.
We have brought students to San Francisco Opera since 1939. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of Bay Area students have attended these performances.
In the heart of every experience lives the potential for a powerful story.
Stories inspire, engage, educate, amuse, frighten, anger, warn and unite us. In an age when experiences are often distilled to a single image, sound bite, or word count, it’s time to release the power of the well-crafted tale, enhanced bysublime melody and vibrant musicality.
This year we invite you and your students to unplug, open up and get to the heart of the matter by engaging in stories that unwind in unpredictable and wonderful ways. These stories express the nuances of human character and wit, set to original and timeless soaring music.
It’s time to find our common threads, beautifully woven into our uniqueness, and journey with characters both familiar and strange. San Francisco Opera Guild offers an exciting line-up of programs this year poised to do just that.
