The pre-show talk is the baseline of adult education at opera companies, yet a number of factors are encouraging new thinking about opera’s lifelong learners. Whether it is a company’s goal to attract new audiences, build excitement for an upcoming season or partner with community organizations, tapping into the way adults enjoy learning is an important consideration. This session will highlight practices in opera and other fields, including projects funded through The Opera Fund: Audience Development grant program, and will welcome discussions on andragogy to consider how opera educators can offer rich adult learning experiences for existing opera fans and the newly curious.
