“Enriching, Inspiring, Accessible. Bringing professional performing arts to our community.” Now in our 39th season, P/A brings high quality, accessible and affordable professional performing arts to northeast CT. Our own flagship programs are our FREE Children’s Educational Opera and Children’s Educational Symphony programs. Through our artistic partners, Salt Marsh Opera Company and the New Haven Symphony Orchestra, local school children are introduced to the creative artistry, discipline, beauty and storyline in productions of the opera and of the orchestra. The students learn about the art form, the narrative and the music through a multi-media study guide provided to teachers. Each participating class is visited by the artists for an in-school workshop prior to the performances. In the spring, the children attend live, fully-staged productions of the opera or symphony at the Hyde Cultural Center.
