Student Dress Rehearsals

Knoxville Opera is pleased to invite all students to attend the Student Dress Rehearsals of all opera productions for free. These rehearsals are overwhelming experiences of live, fully staged operas featuring fabulous solo artists, intriguing productions, the Knoxville Opera Chorus, and the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, all under the direction of Maestro Brian Salesky.

Riveting drama and passionate music will transport you to places you have never dreamed possible! Don’t speak foreign languages? Don’t worry! Regardless of the language in which we perform, all operas are presented with projected English translations on a screen above the stage. Admittance is free for students. Non-Students pay $5 cash at the door and MUST be escorting a student for admittance. These are not public performances. College student IDs may be required.
