Performances are about 40 minutes in length with a Q&A afterwards. Study guides are sent to schools prior to performances. We bring our own sets, costumes, and keyboard Рall we need is an audience!

ROKCincy’s Place in our Community

With arts programming rapidly disappearing from our schools and communities, ROKCincy plays a pivotal role in bringing together young people and families to enjoy the excitement of live performance.

It’s been proven over and over that a well-rounded education which includes the Arts improves focus, communication, and test scores. Early exposure to performance inspires curiosity and broadens the scope of a young person’s world.

Opera is a fantastic introduction to the Arts because it incorporates so many different dynamic art forms; from music, literature and drama to scenery and costumes – there is truly something for everyone!
