    Some time back I was a GATE ed. coordinator at my school and San Diego Opera offered a free school program for us. It is a fond memory for me of a docent coming to our school to brief the group about the opera beforehand. The kids showed up for the “opera bus” all dressed up and on best behavior…..we were treated to Bizet’s “Pearl Fisher,” a short opera, and quite approriate for our kids’ first opera. We were then also entranced by Zandra’s stage designs (at the time, a step-granddaughter was in our group) and I’ve never forgotten it ( as both a History and Art teacher)……This was a peak eductional experience for me and my kids…and I hope San Diego Opera still continues this program today! I am still a GATE coordinator in another school…and would not mind doing this again for my kids.
