Community Engagement


For Manitoba Opera, being part of the community extends beyond the works presented on stage.


Community engagement activities and initiatives provide context for the stage productions and demonstrate the relevance of opera to our 21st century lives.

Manitoba Opera serves the community in a variety of ways that are not directly related to a season production, but provide opportunities for a broad spectrum of people to experience opera in a wide range of forms.
