Young Audiences

Listen, see, experience and feel…

Atelier pédagogique sur Faust à l'atelier peinture de Verntissa, Genève.


Thanks to our partnerships with École et Culture for public schools in the Canton of Geneva and with the cultural service of the AGEP for the private schools of Geneva, each season more than 100 classes from kindergarten to senior year high school from all over the Canton (and sometimes even further), discover opera and ballet with the Grand Théâtre Youth outreach.

A wide range of activities is offered according to the age of the pupils and the teacher’s project. Supervised by experienced artists and professionals, they can choose to try their hand at dance, singing and all the other disciplines that make opera a total art form, or to develop their critical sense and put words to their experience as spectators in order to share it, compare it and develop it.

For public schools in the Canton of Geneva, the educational programme brochure and online registration form is available here below, as well as on the École et Culture website. Participants will be selected by 12 September 2023.

In the SAPE – Structures d’accueil de la petite enfance – educational and cultural activities are special moments that allow children to develop and find their bearings. Because the last year before starting school is a pivotal moment for children, the Grand Théâtre has designed a programme of opera discovery especially for 3-4 year olds, La Fabrique d’Opéra, in collaboration with early childhood professionals. After an initial meeting with a singer in their school, preschoolers can settle comfortably in the foyer with their educators and let the magic of this strange place where people dress up and sing happen.
