Notes from VO Work Experience

Vancouver Opera’s Work Experience program gives Grade 12 students in Metro Vancouver the opportunity to observe the two weeks of rehearsals leading up to the opening night of a production.

Students meet a wide variety of professionals involved in bringing the opera to the stage and interview them about their career. The program is self directed so students are able to meet those professional who work in area of interest to them.

It is a very diverse list including singers, marketing staff and hair and makeup. 

 Students are encouraged to reflect on the process and build connections to their experiences at school and their career goals.  Shari Mountain’s Tumblr is her response to her work experience during the production of Albert Herring in November 2013. Check it out here!
