Opera ARIA (Arts Resources in Action) is San Francisco Opera's suite of in-school arts education programs. ARIA programs connect professional, artistic and creative elements with classroom curricula. Through the lens of opera, students are exposed to music, creative writing, dance, theater and visual arts.

The Opera ARIA Network is built on these 3 key elements:

  1. In-school collaborative partnership between dedicated classroom teachers and SF Opera Teaching Artists (TAs).
  2. Consistent and meaningful Professional Development (PD) sessions.
  3. Opera resources, such as professional singers and opera films, to ensure a multi-dimensional experience for students of all learning types.
