committed to our community

Our commitment to Houston takes us beyond the stage with community and learning programs that nurture a love for the arts for new generations, spark conversations, and make opera accessible to all. No matter your age, interest, or experience, see what the opera can inspire within your community.

learning programs

HGO’s curated learning programs aim to nurture a passion for the arts for community members from Pre-K through retirement. Our multi-faceted learning programs cultivate important 21st century and social-emotional learning competencies.

educator resources

Bring the opera into your place of learning with engaging programs and performances that cultivate the arts for children of all ages—and enjoy opportunities to bring young opera enthusiasts to the Wortham for discounted performances, lectures, and more.

community initiatives

Celebrating Houston’s diversity shapes the path of our partnerships in the community where opera is made for all. Through public performances, in-depth workshops, and opportunities with local hospitals, volunteer initiatives, and youth-centered programs, we ignite important conversations and lend our hand in contemporary issues.
