The In Series

Mission: To work with and for D.C. area artists to create innovative theatrical programming around core of opera, cabaret, and song. In Series productions embrace fresh approaches to the classics and blend the performing arts in unconventional ways. The In Series is committed to excellence, affordability, and access to our shared, multifaceted musical heritage.

Mission: To de-mystify opera and theatre and promote the arts as a tool for learning and communication.

General Description of Education Initiatives: Alongside its performance season the In Series presents Student-Friendly shows to D.C. area students. These theatrically designed programs mirror our main stage opera, concert and cabaret productions and offer plenty of interactive participation to school audiences, grades 1-12. For more information, visit their education page. Specified children's/education programming is also available, produced and contracted on a case by case basis. Should a school or teacher want a specific sort of program, i.e. a program on zarzuela, or just about opera, and not have a full production, we're happy to work with teachers to develop something that brings music and theatre to life in the classroom.
