Education Program


For over 40 years, Tri-Cities Opera’s Resident Artists have been venturing to schools all over New York State and Northern Pennsylvania to present children’s operas and concerts. Named as a nod to Binghamton’s famous carousels, the program reaches as many as 20,000 children each year. Tri-Cities Opera has developed this year’s Opera-Go-Round program as a virtual offering that will be delivered to students, whether in classrooms or home learning spaces, via a digital link.

Student Tickets

Students are offered a special rate for all of the productions at the Forum Theatre and Savoca Hibbitt Hall in Binghamton, NY. This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the complete opera experience, including beautiful singing, colorful sets and costumes, and professional musicians. Excellent for students of foreign languages, literature, history, and music. Call the TCO Box Office at (607) 772-0400 for tickets and additional information.

Adult Education

We firmly believe that learning does not end when school does. In the spirit of continuing education, we offer free opera-related educational programming to adults as well.

Opera Previews

The creative team offers insightful, witty commentary while members of the cast sing selections from the opera and give you a glimpse into their characters’ hearts and souls.


Fifteen minutes directly after every performance at the Tri-Cities Opera Center, the cast and creative team will reappear on stage for a post-show talkback. Audience members are encouraged to stick around and learn about the opera itself and the production process. Q&A session included.
