Aware of the importance of introducing young people to the world of opera, L’Opéra de Québec has decided to make an educational contribution by organizing a series of unique activities for students. The first activity involves admitting students from Secondary I to Secondary V to the dress rehearsal for each opera. Since the spring of 1999, over 38,000 students from the greater Québec City area have been exposed to opera thanks to this program.

The second activity was a drawing contest, “Dessine-moi un opéra”, held from 2000 to 2004. This provided a unique opportunity for elementary school students in the Québec City area to get to know more about opera, and to become directly involved by helping the production team create scenery and costumes based on their drawings. Over the space of four seasons, four productions were based on student drawings; Mozart’s  Magic Flute (June 2000), Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel (October 2001), Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio (March 2003), and Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’amore (March 2004).
